“Erudite and fascinating. Dear reader, if you live like me in some long liberated colony of one or the other, consult this fascinating volume for a guide not merely to its physical relics but to its meanings and its attitudes, which may perhaps be your own. If not, read the book anyway to find what your destiny has missed.”
- Jan Morris, The New York Times Book Review
“A delightful trip from Rome to Hadrian's Wall―in C.E. 130. Great fun for anyone with even a slight knowledge of Roman and English history and geography―or those curious about them.”
