The Romans ruled Britannia for more than 350 years, leaving an indelible
mark on our landscape as they drew us firmly into the Mediterranean world. Town and countryside were transformed by innovations in comfort and taste - albeit shot through with a uniquely British twist - glimpses of which can still be seen at numerous splendid sites and museums in England, Wales and Scotland.

Roman Britain...and Where to Find It will tell you where you can find the best Roman villas, forts, walls and bath-houses, as well as the hidden gems which the uninitiated might pass right by. It will also explain how these remnants of the past fit into the bigger story, pointing out details which have their own tale to tell, connecting us with the people who lived here 2000 years ago – and will acknowledge the archaeologists who made the discoveries, and who continue to reveal more every day.
