Title: Roman Frontiers in Britain
Author(s): David J. Breeze
Publisher: London:  Bristol Classical Press,
Publication Date: 2007
ISBN: 185399698X
ISBN-13:
Current Price and More Info from Amazon

From the Bryn Mawr Classic Review:
Despite the relative slimness and tightly-packed content of Breeze's book, it is perhaps the most complete presentation of the Roman occupation of Britain in 100 pages that I have ever encountered. Many books provide information related to the various military and defensive fortifications the Romans built in Britain, such as Hadrian's Wall and the Antonine Wall, as well as constructions in other areas of Roman occupation. This book does a wonderful job of tying all of this information together in a concise yet scholarly manner. It is not written as a tourist book, but could be used as one; it could also be used as a required text for a college history class or a supplement for a continuing education offering. In short, its best use is probably as an introductory text to the Roman occupation of Britain, as its concise yet general presentation provides a full background of information related to this topic.

Read the full review at the Bryn Mawr Classic Review web site.

Additional Description:
Hadrian’s Wall and the Antonine Wall defined the edge of the Roman Empire in Britain. Today, the spectacular remains of these great frontier works stand as mute testimony to one of the greatest empires the world has ever seen. This new accessible account, illustrated with numerous photographs, maps and plans, places the frontiers into their context both in Britain and Europe, examining the development of frontier installations over four centuries.
