The art of Roman Britain by Martin Henig( )

28 editions published between 1995 and 2016 in English and held by 890 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With the help of over 100 illustrations, many of them little known, Dr Henig shows that the art produced in Britannia - particularly in the golden age of Late Antiquity - not only rivals that of other provinces but deserves comparison with the art of metropolitan Rome. After showing how a distinctive style emerged from the fusion of the Celtic and Roman traditions, he details the vital part played by art in the daily life of both the army and the civilian population. He also distinguishes carefully between the work of foreign artists in Britain, Romano-British and Romano-Gaulish provincial art (as well as other provincial styles) and the native British work of the period."--Jacket

The heirs of King Verica : culture & politics in Roman Britain by Martin Henig( Book )

8 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 225 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Britain is traditionally considered to have been conquered by the Romans in AD 43. In fact the intervention took place because an important faction of the Atrebates tribe under King Verica persuaded the Emperor Claudius to intervene against other Britons who had invaded its territory. Central southern Britain was liberated by a forced landing in Chichester harbour and thereafter remained largely free from the influence of the Roman army. It became Roman under the patronage of a powerful high king, Tiberius Claudius Togidubnus." "Cultural and artistic life flourished, melding Celtic and Roman features into a brilliant new civilization which reached its apogee in the fourth century, when the former protectorate became Britannia Prima with its capital at Cirencester. After the early fifth century, the cessation of coinage made the financing of public buildings, villas and associated works of art impossible, but something survived of Roman Britain in the distinctive British Latin, the insular version of Christianity and the style of minor works of art. In a real sense Britannia Prima was the predecessor of Alfred's Wessex." "This interpretation of British life in the first millennium AD, beginning with Verica's flight and ending with Alfred and Bishop Asser, is presented as the Roman Britons (well versed in Ovid and other Roman writers) would doubtless have seen it."--BOOK JACKET

"The sculptures, all in local sandstone, were carved locally and provide an index of Romanisation in the far north-west of the Roman empire - at the Fortress of Legio II Adivtrix and then Legio XX Valeria Victrix at Devra (Chester), and at the Fortress and subsequently the civil town of the Cornovii at Viroconium (Wroxeter). The sculpture from Letcetum (Wall, Staffs) is also considered."--BOOK JACKET
