Architecture in Roman Britain

Edited by Peter Johnson with Ian Haynes

CBA Research Report No 94 (1996)

ISBN 1 872414 39 7


Title page of report 94

Architecture in Roman Britain is drawn from the proceedings of a conference organized by the Roman Research Trust and held at the Museum of London in November 1991. It contains four sections, dealing with external decoration, the elevations of buildings, military architecture, and British manifestations of the architecture of the later Roman Empire. Some of the most important recent work that is serving to change prevailing ideas about provincial Roman architecture will be found here, together with an overview by Prof J J Wilkes which puts it within its imperial context.
