    Hardcover ´ UnRoman Britain Epub Ì unroman book, britain ebok, UnRoman Britain Kindle UnRoman Britain argues that “Britain although it may have been a formal part of the Roman Empire for nearly 400 years was never fully Roman” p 21 Like the British in India or the Americans in Ira the Roman occupiers established pockets of their culture and co opted the ruling elites but left the countryside and its people alone Pre Roman Celtic culture survived and re emerged when the legions evacuated c AD 410Sadly I’ve allowed a backlog of reviews to accumulate on my desk This book which I read than a year ago is one of them But based on the notes I took here are some of the points the authors make Membership in tribal groups was fluid It’s a mistake to look at a map of pre Roman Britain with its clearly defined tribes and imagine it reflects a late Iron Age reality After Boudicca’s revolt Rome imposed a traditional provincial government It reorganized existing towns and established others along traditional Graeco Roman lines although the archaeological evidence indica

    Hardcover ´ UnRoman Britain Epub Ì unroman book, britain ebok, UnRoman Britain KindleThis is a good solid well researched book on Roman Britain It takes a fresh look at the evidence and comes to some novel conclusions I am not sure I agree with everything he says but it is all interesting You do need to have a bit of basic background knowledge to get the most from this book A great read

    Hardcover ´ UnRoman Britain Epub Ì unroman book, britain ebok, UnRoman Britain KindleI came to this book with high expectations only to find myself disappointed Firstly it's a short book with only ten chapters Secondly the book is an uneven mix of tabloid tirades and archaeological insight frankly much of this book is nothing than a rant and much of the archaeology that is actually discussed adds little depth to the argument despite the slogan of UnRoman Britain that the authors repeatedly assertEven worse is that because this is a short book so much is missed there's no real discussion of changes that would have affected many ordinary people in Britain such as new tools new crops and new dis

    Hardcover ´ UnRoman Britain Epub Ì unroman book, britain ebok, UnRoman Britain KindleEl título del libro lo dice todo la ocupación romana de Britannia fue culturalmente muy superficial como prueba ue en muy poco tiempo desapareciera todo vestigio; luego lo revisaron un poco a partir del siglo XVIII y las glorias imperialesTiene partes interesantes y por supuesto siempre se aprende algo Mi favorito cuando alguien aprende un idioma nuevo evita meter palabras del suyo materno porue sabe ue es un error pero sigue usando la gramática de su idioma materno de forma inconsciente Por eso podemos determinar la influencia celta en el idioma anglosajón ue sustituyó primero al latín de las élites y pronto también al idioma del puebloPero se hace largo demasiado prolijo enumeraciones constantes de tribus y ciudades supongo ue añaden rigor al libro pero se hace duro y un tanto aburrido

    Hardcover ´ UnRoman Britain Epub Ì unroman book, britain ebok, UnRoman Britain KindleUnRoman Britain looks at Britain from the pre Roman period to prior to the coming of the Saxons I have been very pleased with the book and should be on the shelf of anyone interested in the period It looks at architectural archeology finds and language and attempts to prove that Britain was never fully integrated into the Roman Empire The trouble with the book is the current findings almost support this in the eastern and southern parts of the island But those are the areas were the best finds are located In Cornwall and Wales the physical materials are weaker but those are the areas most likely to be less Roman Overall it is a good attempt and will start a lot of conversations amongst those interested in Britai

    Hardcover ´ UnRoman Britain Epub Ì unroman book, britain ebok, UnRoman Britain KindleCompelling revisionist history presenting current archaeological linguistic and scientific thought on the 400 year period of Roman presence in Britain If I have a uibble it would be linguistic although there is discussion of current linguistic theory on the Celtic roots of Early AS English I don't think the authors sufficiently explained that thinking and there is some fudging going on with that pesky language geography spread thing That notwithstanding the economic historic and archaeological arguments are solid To summarize Roman Britain not so Roman after all
