    One thought on “Britannia: History of Roman Britain

    1. James Spencer on said:

      I came to this as part of the Folio Society's History of England the selections of which were chosen for their value as literature. As such I was disappointed. The author assumes a substantial knowledge of Roman history generally and rarely explains terms and names. This problem is exacerbated by the book's organization the first half is more or less the "political history" of England in the first three centuries CE. It is a parade of governor's and emperor's names and locations of forts and for [...]

    2. Erik Graff on said:

      I've studied Britannia more than any other Roman province, probably because books about it in English are so commonly available. This has been the best book on the subject I've come upon thus far.I read this text while Catherine, an old friend from Loyola University, was staying with me after coming from her home in St. Paul, Minnesota to visit myself and other friends of hers in the Chicago area.

    3. Daniel Bennett on said:

      This book sets the standard for history books. Frere is original in his approach to the evidence, and quite clever about the way he presents the story. It's a landmark for the history of Roman Britain, and every classicist ought to read at least some part of it. The common reader may find it a bit dull, but it's very useful for research.

    4. Tom Ward on said:

      This book presupposes a fairly intimate knowledge of Roman Britain, despite that being its teaching goal. Frere has no shortage of knowledge, and is well versed in sources, but his organization is poor and his writing convoluted.
