On the back cover:

This book is a comprehensive visitors guide to Roman sites in England, Scotland and Wales. David E. Johnston is a former lecturer at the university of Southampton and is a seasoned field archaeologist. The introductory section includes a historical outline of Roman Britain and a description of the various types of site included, thus setting the scene for the gazetteer of sites which follows.

 

The English sites are arranged by counties in alphabetical order, with a special section on Hadrian's wall, and finally two Roman sites in the Channel Islands. Major sites include towns, fortresses, temples and villas. Rural settlements and landscape features such as Celtic fields and roads are noted where the remains repay a visit. Less familiar items like Roman barrows, mausolea, practice camps and canals are included, as well as hillforts that were occupied during the Roman period. National grid references and directions for finding the sites are given. The text and illustrations have been revised for this third edition.
