From the cover: “What did the Romans do after they conquered Britain and what was the reaction of the native population? Where did ordinary people live and how did they occupy themselves — at work and at play? These questions and more are answered in this new and accessible look at all aspects of life in Roman Britain.
Everything is covered from domestic housing in both town and country, to religious beliefs, arts and cookery, public and private entertainment; as well as often-ignored aspects of Roman society, such as the treatment of slaves and education of children. Backed by the latest archaeological research, Dr Alcock also looks at:
- Art and decoration
- Food and drink
- Disposal of the dead
- Hygiene and medicine
- Clothing and cosmetics
