Conquest from the Author: John Peddie. The story of the Claudian Conquest of Britain was only partly recorded by ancient historians. Tacitus' Annals breaks off at the death of Tiberius, while the narrative of Cassius Dio survives only as a collection of selected pieces. Much of this missing knowledge has been recaptured by archaeological research. As a result, we have a better understanding of the tribal society which then existed in Britain, and this can help us to appreciate the courses of military action open to Aulus Plautius, the commanding Roman general. There are other important military factors which would have affected Plautius' choice of options: logistical, geographical, political. In this innovative and much acclaimed study John Peddie argues that the organisation and supply problems of a task force of some 40,000 men and several thousand animals would broadly have dictated Roman tactics. He discusses what these may have been, examines the reason's for Vespasian's seemingly isolated foray into the West Country, and suggests that Caratacus' guerilla campaign (AD 43-52) denied the Romans their hope of a speedy conquest

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.

To Rule Britannia from the Author: John Waite. A new approach to the question of where the Roman landings actually took place and the tactics involved In ad 43 the Romans landed an invasion force on the shores of Britain, heralding the beginning of recorded British history and laying the cultural foundations of their current national identity. Yet despite the crucial importance of this event, the actual location of the landings is still uncertain. Historians and archaeologists have debated and written much over the years with regard to this particular question, with Richborough in Kent and Chichester in Sussex most often proposed as favorites. Taking an alternative approach, this book places much greater emphasis on the practical problems the Romans faced in deciding on a landing site and offers fresh thinking on many key aspects. The result is the most comprehensive study to date of the invasions of Caesar and Claudius, presenting a straightforward and logical examination that can be readily appreciated by both the casual and specialist reader alike.

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.
