A controversial book, very thought provoking

UnRoman Britain argues that “Britain, although it may have been a formal part of the Roman Empire for nearly 400 years, was never fully Roman” (p. 21). Like the British in India or the Americans in Iraq, the Roman occupiers established pockets of their culture and co-opted the ruling elites but left the countryside and its people alone. Pre-Roman Celtic culture survived and re-emerged when the legions evacuated c. AD 410

This is a book which disperses the mists associated with Roman Britain and helps to explain some historical anomalies. Why did the Celtic languages survive. Why is a Germanic rather than a romance language spoken in Britain. Why is there such a small Roman genetic foot print. Fascinating.
