Britons and Romans: advancing an archaeological agenda

Edited by Simon James and Martin Millett

CBA Research Report No 125 (2001)

ISBN 1 902771 16 8


Title page of report 125

Arising from the English Heritage-sponsored session 'Romano-British Research Agendas' at the Roman Archaeology Conference,Durham 1999, this volume seeks to encourage those with an interest in the subject to think broadly,and to engage actively in shaping the future priorities of research into Roman Britain - it is not designed to dictate them.

The volume includes revised and expanded versions on the papers presented and discussed on: the Iron Age to Roman transition; Romanisation,gender and class; material culture and identity; material approaches to the identification of different Romano-British site types; the role of vertebrate zooarchaeology; rural society; urbanism; soldiers and civilians; and the Roman to medieval transition, together with an additional contribution on urban research.
