Abstract:

"This challenging book encourages those with an interest in the subject to think broadly, and to engage actively in shaping the future priorities of research into Roman Britain." "The volume brings together leading specialists in the field whose chapters develop the themes of the English Heritage-sponsored session 'Romano-British Research Agendas' at the Roman Archaeology Conference at Durham. The contributors provide up-to-date syntheses of significant new knowledge, and suggest what we still need to know on themes as diverse as: the Iron Age/Roman and Roman/Medieval transitions; Romanisation; material culture and identity; the identification of different Romano-British site types; rural society; urbanism; zooarchaeology; and soldiers and civilians." "Within these themes, the contributors seek to break down the relative insularity of Romano-British studies, to open it up to new external perspectives, and to promote the value of its outstandingly rich archaeological evidence to archaeologists working in other fields, and on other territories. It is hoped these papers will help to integrate academic research with the opportunities provided by continued intense archaeological activity in Britain, especially in developer-funded archaeology." "The book will be of value to field-workers, researchers, artefact and environmental specialists, curators, heritage managers, the voluntary sector, and anyone with an active interest in advancing our understanding of Britain's Roman past. Book jacket."--Jacket.
