This resource is aimed primarily at students in my Britain under Roman rule course. It’s not intended to be exhaustive. Since the advent of online books this would clearly be impossible. It’s more of an eclectic collection of material which I have found useful and informative over the years. When using this facility there are a couple of things which you should bear in mind:
- I have made no attempt to achieve a uniformity of style or academic level. Some of the items listed below are aimed at university undergraduates. Others are taken from the BBC education pages. All have been useful to me. If you are finding the item you have selected too hard/easy, try the next one; it may be more to your liking.
- Caution should be used when looking at older sources. Several have been included in the regional section as they represent the first written record of Roman remains in their area. However, the interpretation of earthwork sites given by 19th and early 20th century writers cannot always be relied upon. It is therefore advisable to confirm analysis given in antiquarian works by consulting a more modern source.
- At present I teach courses in West Yorkshire (UK) and this is reflected in the material listed under the heading of regional.
This is still a work in progress and further listings will be added as the course progresses.
