John Manley

Paperback. 160p, 43 b/w illustrations. Tempus 2002)

This refreshing and involving reassessment of the first few weeks of the Roman invasion revolves around a series of questions: were the Romans like us? why did historians choose Richborough as the landing site? what was the environment like in AD 43? What evidence is there from Richborough and Fishbourne? Manley, director of recent excavations at Fishbourne Palace, answers these questions and challenges past assumptions about the practicalities of the invasion in an engaging and personable style. This fascinating story is soundly based on archaeological and documentary evidence and unfolds in the same way as an archaeologist uncovers and comes to understand his site. Foreword by Barry Cunliffe.
