Roman Conquests: Britain


17 August 2022

If you were intrigued by the Agricola book reviewed recently, then here are his exploits put into the overall context of the Roman conquest of Britain, which was never fully completed. The unruly tribes though, proved so problematic that a heavy Roman presence was required to maintain control. You have battles and strategy, backed up by the main people, equipment and organisation on both sides. There’s even room to fit in some detail on the infamous legio IX Hispana which disappeared in the early 2nd century. With photos of equipment and locations, you get a compact and lively guide to the Roman occupation.
