Yorkshire was part of the Roman Empire for about 340 years and the remains of the period are all around us to this day. They range from the Roman fortress walls at York to the sites of country villas and humbler farmsteads. The region’s museums are full of Roman objects from fine sculpture to the pottery and metalwork used in daily life. Place-names like Catterick and Doncaster remind many of us that we still live where the Romans once set up camp. Patrick Ottaway has written an enthralling and authoritative account of these early years of our county’s history, which recounts not only the story of the soldiers and emperors, who usually figure so prominently in accounts of the Roman period, but that of the lives of the ordinary citizens, ploughing their fields, tending their cattle and spinning their cloth as they had done for centuries past and would continue to do until the modern era. Topics include : The environment and landscape of the Yorkshire region. The search for  Yorkshire Romans and natives before the Conquest. The Roman conquest of the Yorkshire region. The Yorkshire region in the early Roman period from Hadrian to the Severi Septimius Severus in Yorkshire. From the Severi to the House of Constantine. Decline and fall Yorkshire’s Roman legacy. 170 illustrations, tables and maps.
