The Roman Invasion Of Britain. The purpose of this book is to take what we think we know about the Roman Conquest of Britain from historical sources, and compare it with the archaeological evidence, which is often contradictory. Archaeologists and historians all too often work in complete isolation from each other and this book hopes to show the dangers of neglecting either form of evidence. In the process it challenges much received wisdom about the history of Roman Britain. ??Birgitta Hoffmann tackles the subject by taking a number of major events or episodes (such as Caesar's incursions, Claudius' invasion, Boudicca's revolt), presenting the accepted narrative as derived from historical sources, and then presenting the archaeological evidence for the same. The result of this innovative approach is a book full of surprising and controversial conclusions that will appeal to the general reader as well as those studying or teaching courses on ancient history or archaeology.

Ad Britannia. This historical novel is about a handsome young Germanic horseman who served as a Roman auxiliary cavalryman during the early first century when Emperor Claudius’ powerful legions invade the island of Britannia. Driven to revenge the murder of a childhood friend, Chatti Ivo pursues a corrupt Roman tribune across much of Western Europa, to become favored by tribal leaders and Roman aristocrats, including Emperor Claudius himself. During these first 29 years of his life, Ivo sees much of the good and bad of the spectacular young Roman Empire and finds love with Aurelia (the beautiful daughter of Mainz’s Roman legionary commander) whom he rescues from the Rhine during his tribe’s retaliatory raid against the arrogant tribune.

Roman Invasions. Geoffrey of Monmouth's History of Britain exerted a strong influence on the historiographers of 15th- and 16th-century England, not least for its patriotism and for the timely parallels between ancient Roman invaders and the Roman Catholic threat. Curran's thesis, extremely detailed and thorough, examines the complex relationship between England and Rome, and between Protestantism and Catholicism, and looks at how contemporary writers such as Drayton, Shakespeare, Spenser and Milton appropriated elements of Geoffrey's account, particularly his `anti-Roman narrative', in their own reworking of British history and British national identity.
