BeschreibungThe Roman period in Wales was of exceptional importance in the development of the country and left a lasting historical and archaeological legacy. This fully-illustrated "Pocket Guide: Roman Wales "is the first study of this period aimed at the general reader. Beginning with the Iron Age background, this wide-ranging and accessible book traces the history and development of Roman Wales from the conquest to the collapse of the Roman administration and the rise of the independent Christian kingdoms of Wales. It also looks at the military occupation, the cities, especially Caerwent, smaller rural settlements, life in the countryside and villas of south-east Wales, and the evidence for industry including mining and pottery production.
PortraitWilliam Manning was Emeritus Professor of Archaeology at Cardiff University and is the author of numerous books and articles on archaeological topics, specifically the archaeology of Wales and Roman remains.
