Abstract:

"This major new work on Roman London brings together the many new discoveries of the last generation and provides a broad overview of the city from its foundation to the third century AD. Richard Hingley explores the archaeological and historical evidence for London under the Romans, assessing the city in the context of its province and the wider empire. He explores the multiple functions of Londinium over time, considering economy, industry, trade, status and urban infrastructure, but also looking at how power, status, gender and identity are reflected through the materiality of the landscape and waterscape of the evolving city. A particular focus of the book is the ritual and religious context in which these activities occurred. Hingley looks at how places within the developing urban landscape were inherited and considers how the history and meanings of the urban landscapes of Londinium built upon earlier associations from the recent and ancient past. As well as providing a much-needed synthesis of recent scholarship and material evidence, Hingley offers new perspectives that will inspire future debate and research in years to come. This volume is not only an accessible introduction for undergraduate students and anyone interested in the ancient city of London, but also an essential account for more advanced students and scholars"--
