This book is an analytical Roman Invasions of Britian book of what we think we know and what we actually know (practically nothing) about the Roman invasions of Britain and there aftermath. It covers the ground from Caesar to the late forth century/5(13).

John Peddie, a retired British infantry officer, has attempted to re-construct the Roman invasion of Britain in 43 AD by extrapolating from the fragmentary accounts of Cassius Dio and Tacitus. The author uses "inherent military probability" to fill in the many gaps in the historical record and thereby produce a coherent campaign narrative/5(10).

This book analyses the Roman invasion of Britain from an historical perspective and an archaeological perspective. It illustrates where history differs from the scientific evidence and where is matches up.

Hoffmann mainly does this by picking key events in the Roman invasion of Britain and explaining what history tells us of these events.4/5(1).

The purpose of this book is to take what we think we know about the Roman Conquest of Britain from historical sources, and compare it with the archaeological evidence, which is often contradictory. Archaeologists and historians all too often work in complete isolation from each other and this book hopes to show the dangers of neglecting either form of evidence.
