Roman officers and English gentlemen. The imperial origins of Roman archaeology

Richard Hingley

Paperback, 224 pp. Routledge 2000

This landmark book shows how much Victorian and Edwardian Roman archaeologists were influenced by their own experience of empire in their interpretation of archaeological evidence. This distortion of the facts became accepted truth and its legacy is still felt in archaeology today. While tracing the development of these ideas, the author also gives the reader a throrough grounding in the history of Roman archaeology itself.
