Synopsis

A Journey to Britannia A Journey from the Heart of Rome to Hadrian's Wall, C. AD130 by Bronwen Riley

An evocation of a journey from Rome, the heart of Empire, to Hadrian's Wall during the reign of the emperor Hadrian. By AD 125 Britannia had come of age as a Roman colony. Her major cities had been established, and the building of the wall commissioned by the emperor Hadrian on the empire's Scottish frontier was almost complete. Bronwen Riley devotes a chapter to each stage of an epic journey, describing places visited and people and objects seen. Vivid and engaging, A JOURNEY TO BRITANNIA reveals the British corner of Roman civilization more arrestingly and more accurately than ever before.
