The Roman Invasion Of Britain from the Author: Birgitta Hoffmann. The purpose of this book is to take what we think we know about the Roman Conquest of Britain from historical sources, and compare it with the archaeological evidence, which is often contradictory. Archaeologists and historians all too often work in complete isolation from each other and this book hopes to show the dangers of neglecting either form of evidence. In the process it challenges much received wisdom about the history of Roman Britain. ??Birgitta Hoffmann tackles the subject by taking a number of major events or episodes (such as Caesar's incursions, Claudius' invasion, Boudicca's revolt), presenting the accepted narrative as derived from historical sources, and then presenting the archaeological evidence for the same. The result of this innovative approach is a book full of surprising and controversial conclusions that will appeal to the general reader as well as those studying or teaching courses on ancient history or archaeology.

Conquest from the Author: John Peddie. This is an innovative and much acclaimed military appraisal of the Claudian invasion. John Peddle argues that the organization and supply problems of a task force of some 40,000 men and several thousand animals would have broadly dictated Roman tactics. He discusses what these may have been, examines the reasons for Vespasian's seemingly isolated foray into the West Country, and suggests that Caratacus' guerilla campaign denied the Romans their hope of a speedy conquest.

Roman Invasions from the Author: John E. Curran. Geoffrey of Monmouth's History of Britain exerted a strong influence on the historiographers of 15th- and 16th-century England, not least for its patriotism and for the timely parallels between ancient Roman invaders and the Roman Catholic threat. Curran's thesis, extremely detailed and thorough, examines the complex relationship between England and Rome, and between Protestantism and Catholicism, and looks at how contemporary writers such as Drayton, Shakespeare, Spenser and Milton appropriated elements of Geoffrey's account, particularly his `anti-Roman narrative', in their own reworking of British history and British national identity.
