Roman Britain : a new history by Guy De la Bédoyère( Book )

21 editions published between 2006 and 2013 in English and held by 1,328 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this new account of Britain as a Roman province, Guy de la Bedoyere puts the Roman conquest and occupation of the island within the larger context of Romano-British society and how it functioned." "The book includes reconstruction drawings by the author that re-create structures from Chester's unusual "elliptical building" to the triumphal arch at Richborough and the temple of Sulis-Minerva at Bath. Dramatic aerial views of Roman remains such as Housesteads along Hadrian's Wall and the Saxon Shore fort of Portchester are also featured, as are a wide array of images of Roman villas, mosaics, coins, pottery, and sculpture. The book incorporates the very latest discoveries, including the remains of a stadium recently uncovered at Colchester."--Jacket

Defying Rome : the rebels of Roman Britain by Guy De la Bédoyère( Book )

8 editions published between 2003 and 2007 in English and held by 460 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The power of the Roman Empire was under constant challenge. Nowhere was this truer than in Britain, Rome's remotest and most recalcitrant province. A succession of idealists, chancers and reactionaries fomented dissent and rebellion. Some, like Caratacus and Boudica, were tribal chiefs wanting to expel Rome and recover lost power. Others were military opportunists such as Carausius and Allectus, who wanted to become emperor and were prepared to exploit everything Britain had to offer to support their bids for power. Each of these rebellions reads like a story in itself, combining archaeology with the dramatic testimony of the historical and epigraphic sources, and explains why Britain was such a hot-bed of dissent. Book jacket."--Jacket
The real lives of Roman Britain : a history of Roman Britain through the lives of those who were there by Guy De la Bédoyère( Book )

10 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 411 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Britain of the Roman Occupation is, in a way, an age that is dark to us. While the main events from 55 BC to AD 410 are little disputed, and the archaeological remains of villas, forts, walls, and cities explain a great deal, we lack a clear sense of individual lives. This book is the first to infuse the story of Britannia with a beating heart, the first to describe in detail who its inhabitants were and their place in our history. A lifelong specialist in Romano-British history, Guy de la Bedoyere is the first to recover the period exclusively as a human experience. He focuses not on military campaigns and imperial politics but on individual, personal stories. Roman Britain is revealed as a place where the ambitious scramble for power and prestige, the devout seek solace and security through religion, men and women eke out existences in a provincial frontier land. De la Bedoyere introduces Fortunata the slave girl, Emeritus the frustrated centurion, the grieving father Quintus Corellius Fortis, and the brilliant metal worker Boduogenus, among numerous others. Through a wide array of records and artifacts, the author introduces the colorful cast of immigrants who arrived during the Roman era while offering an unusual glimpse of indigenous Britons, until now nearly invisible in histories of Roman Britain"--

Cities of Roman Italy : Pompeii, Herculaneum and Ostia by Guy De la Bédoyère( Book )

8 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 209 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The ruins of Pompeii, Herculaneum, and Ostia have excited the imagination of scholars and tourists alike since early modern times. The removal of volcanic debris at Pompeii and Herculaneum, and the clearance of centuries of accumulated soil and vegetation from the ancient port city of Rome at Ostia, have provided us with the most important evidence for Roman urban life. Work goes on at all three sites to this day, and they continue to produce new surprises. Pompeii is the subject of many accessible and useful books, but much less is available in English for the other two cities. This book is designed for students of classics and archaeology A-level or university courses who need a onestop introduction to all three sites. Its principal focus is status and identity in Roman cities, and how these were expressed through institutions, public buildings and facilities, private houses and funerary monuments, against a backdrop of the history of the cities, their rise, their destruction, preservation and excavation. The reader is also guided towards other reading material and Internet sites that now offer unprecedented online access to the cities."--Page 4 of cover
