    Book details

Roman Britain was a multi-cultural mix of Celtic natives of different tribes and religions, of Romans with their own pantheon of deities, and of the soldiers and traders who brought their own practices and beliefs from all parts of Europe and North Africa and the East. This volume explores the way in which they practiced their religions in the relatively peaceful and prosperous areas of south eastern Britain, in towns and in the countryside, at temples and shrines, in cemeteries, and in their houses. The book provides an up-to-date review of the evidence; it is written in a style that will appeal to both the general reader and the specialist. It is extensively illustrated with photos in colour and black and white, and with drawings and maps.
