History of publishing, an account of the selection, preparation, and marketing of printed matter from its origins in ancient times to the present.

      Interwoven with the historical narrative is a social history of the period showing how Roman society grew in Britain. Joan Alcock is a fellow of the University of South London. She is also the author of A Social History of Roman Britain, as well as A Social History of Ancient Rome.   The next era in Britain’s history is the Roman conquest. In the first century B.C.E., the Romans invaded and spread their territory to the Anglo-Scottish border. There, Hadrian’s Wall marks the edge of the empire. Consider the Roman impact on Great Britain, from the city of Bath to the island’s long, straight roads.

      The End of Roman Britain. The Collapse of Imperial Rule in Britain. Postscript to Roman Britain --V. Britain under Roman Rule. The Assimilation of Britain. The Historical Geography of Roman Britain. Town and Country. The Economy. Religion and Society. List of Roman Emperors. Other Titles: Oxford illustrated history. I did not realize that our knowledge about Roman Britain was so thorough and so limited as well. It is a well-researched and quite fascinating book, though De La Bedoyere tends to jump from one individual to another quite quickly because of the lack of information about each person.
