    schema:description "There are also sections on local government, the governors' staff, the senatorial and procuratorial career in the principate, and the late Roman civil and military system. The subdivisions, into Upper and Lower Britain, then into four, and finally five, provinces are discussed. Thus the book provides a narrative history of Roman Britain, with a full conspectus of the literary, epigraphic, and numismatic sources. Further, the analysis of the background and careers of hundreds of individuals who served in Britain sheds light on the way the Roman Empire worked during a period of over 360 years."--Jacket."@en ;
