Full description for The Roman Invasion of Britain
The Roman conquest of Britain in AD43 was one of the most important turning points in the history of the British Isles. It left a legacy still discernible today in the form of archaeological remains, road networks, land divisions and even language. In his much acclaimed trilogy, now up-dated and revised, Dr Webster builds up a fascinating and lively picture of Britain in the first century AD and discusses in detail the various types of evidence and the theories based upon them. Graham Webster gives the background of Britain before the invasion and goes on to describe the Roman forces, the personalities involved, the actual invasion - the crucial battle on the Meday - and Claudius's triumphal entrance into Camulodunum, the British captial.
