The Atlantic Celts : ancient people or modern invention? by Simon James( Book )
14 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 420 libraries worldwide
"In this book Simon James surveys ancient and modern ideas of the Celts and challenges them in the light of revolutionary new thinking on the Iron Age peoples of Britain. Examining how ethnic and national identities are constructed, he presents an alternative history of the British Isles, proposing that the idea of insular Celtic identity is really a product of the rise of nationalism in the eighteenth century. He considers whether the 'Celticness' of the British Isles is a romantic fantasy, even a politically dangerous falsification of history which has implications in the current debate on devolution and self-government for the Celtic regions."--BOOK JACKET

Becoming Roman, being Gallic, staying British : research and excavations at Ditches "Hillfort" and villa, 1984-2006 by Stephen Trow( Book )
7 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 97 libraries worldwide
"Excavations at Ditches in the Gloucestershire Cotswolds during the 1980s investigated a large late Iron Age enclosure which proved to contain a remarkably early Roman villa. Discoveries included a well-preserved cellar and a range of finds, including Gallo-Belgic wares, Iron Age coins, coin moulds, Venus figurines and brooches indicating high-status occupation in the late Iron Age and early Roman period. This volume not only includes a report on the excavations of 1984-5, but also additional work, including a new geophysical survey and reassessment of the finds. Alongside re-appraisal of much of the 1980s evidence, this analysis allows the earlier material to be compared with more recent studies of the late Iron Age-Roman transition contributing to debates over processes of 'Romanization', questions of social and political continuity and the nature of villa development in Britain."--BOOK JACKET

Das Schwert ist im alten Rom nicht nur das Erzeugnis einer hochentwickelten Technologie, sondern steht vor allem als Metapher imperialer Macht im Fokus.

Einer Legende zufolge wurde Rom 753 v. Chr. von den Zwillingen Romulus und Remus, den Söhnen des Kriegsgottes Mars gegründet. Die Zwillinge wurden nach ihrer Geburt dem Tod überlassen, von einer Wölfin gefunden und von ihr aufgezogen. Wie lebten die alten Römer? Was waren Gladiatoren? Was ist das Kolosseum und wofür wurde es genutzt? Auf diese und viele weitere Fragen bekommen Kinder in Band 38 der grossen neuen Wissensreihe memo Antworten. Beeindruckende Bilder von Göttern und Helden, imposanten Bauwerken und wertvollen Kunstgegenständen sind mit gut gegliederten, kurzen Texten kom- biniert. So werden auch schwierigere Sachverhalte für Kinder leicht verständlich. Rubriken wie "Erstaunliche Fakten", "Fragen und Antworten" oder "Rekordver- dächtig" sowie ein umfangreiches Glossar wiederholen das vorher vermittelte Wissen und geben einen Überblick. Perfekt für Schulprojekte und Referate. (Quelle: Homepage des Verlags)
