A brief history of Roman Britain by Joan P Alcock( Book )

In BC 55 Julius Caesar came, saw, conquered and then left. It was not until AD 43 that the Emperor Claudius crossed the channel and made Britain the western outpost of the Roman Empire that would span from the Scottish border to Persia. For the next 400 years the island would be transformed. Within that period would see the rise of Londinium, almost immediately burnt to the ground in 60 AD by Boudicca; Hadrian's Wall which was constructed in 112 AD to keep the northern tribes at bay as well as the birth of the Emperor Constantine in third century York.

"What did the Romans do after they conquered Britain and what was the reaction of the native population? Where did ordinary people live and how did they occupy themselves - at work and at play? These questions and more are answered in this new and accessible look at all aspects of life in Roman Britain. Everything is covered from domestic housing in both town and country, to religious beliefs, arts and cookery, public and private entertainment; as well as often-ignored aspects of Roman society, such as the treatment of slaves and education of children."--Jacket

Life in ancient Rome by Joan P Alcock( Book )

3 editions published in 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ancient Rome, as a subject, has always attracted and fascinated people. The extent of its vast empire, much of it a result of its efficient military power, was such that many Romans believed that they governed the whole world, as it was then known, and that it was their right and destiny to do this. That empire has influenced later civilisations and its classical tradition can be seen in our own time in such diverse areas as language, customs, architecture and modes of thought. Visitors to Rome, throughout the centuries, have marvelled at its monuments and speculated on the lives of its people." "This book, concentrating on life in the city of Rome in the late republic and the empire, also takes examples from Rome's provinces. Readers will have the opportunity to gain knowledge of its people through Rome's government, administration, economy and trade. They can contemplate how ordinary Romans lived their daily lives - how they worshipped, travelled, fed themselves, entertained
