Athena Review   Vol.1, no.2

Romano-British Sites and Museums (part 2):

A guide to towns, villas, and regional museums.

The Roman era in Britain lasted for four centuries, with continuous Roman occupation from AD 43 to 410. Hundreds of archaeological sites representing mixtures of Roman and native British cultures are known in England, Wales, and Scotland, ranging from large forts and towns to individual villas and small farms. Evidence of daily life during the Roman period may be seen at a variety of sites and museums, including many local and regional displays featured in this guide.

The Guide to Romano-British Sites and Museums (beginning in part 1 with Forts and Military displays) continues here with Roman towns, villas, regional and local museums, and other (non-British) Roman collections in the UK. Wherever available, related Internet links are provided.
