    One thought on “Londinium: London in the Roman Empire”

    1. For most historians, the greatest single limitation to understanding the past is the availability of source material. Ultimately, our ability to decipher what came before is limited by the records at hand, a factor which can constrain even the best historian. This is particularly evident in John Morris' history of Roman London. A longtime historian of the Roman Empire and its aftermath in Britain, Morris draws upon the range of available archaeological and historical evidence to describe the fir [...]

    2. This book is more about the Roman empire than about London IN the Roman Empire. I respect Morris's academic honesty and his careful reasoning, but this book should probably be called "We don't really know much about London until way later, so here's some facts about what life was like in other parts of the Roman empire. Oh, and potsherds." But that's too long. The maps aren't very helpful. Some interesting connections between the Romans and the Victorians. And I often thought about how the U.S. [...]

    3. What to say about this book? Well, for most of it I found it really enjoyable. It isn't so much a pure history of Roman London, as it is a history of provincial cities during the Roman Empire. And that was fascinating. It talks about sources for civic organization in various other remote towns founded by the Romans (as London was), life in the provinces, how Roman culture spread through the conquered lands, and how all of this might have applied to London as well. It looks at written and archaeo [...]

    4. Certainly a thorough account of an interesting period in Roman history, though hardly an entertaining one. Definitely thoroughly researched and documented. Of course much has been done in Brit archaeology in the past 25 years that makes it a bit dated, but not much.

    5. Tim Root told me he really liked this book, about the early formation of London, when it began as a Roman settlement.
