288 pp, large 8vo (9 7/8" H). Profusely illustrated with b&w photographs, maps, plans, drawings, diagrams. "Under the Roman Empire, London became a major city - valuable to Rome as port, administrative capital and strategic base. But, despite spectacular discoveries such as that of the Temple of Mithras, the available evidence has been inconclusive on many of the basic questions that have puzzled generations of archaeologists and historians. Was there a pre-Roman London - and if not, why not? How exactly did the city develop during the four centuries of Roman occupation? What happened between 410 and 600, during the traditional 'Dark Ages'? Over the last ten years, however, the rescue excavations carried out in the City and in Southwark have produced a great deal more material evidence. By carefully correlating the archaeological discoveries, new and old, with the historical and numismatic evidence, it is possible to make some historical sense of the innumerable scraps of seemingly unconnected information. Recent excavations have also raised new questions: why were so many houses and workshops apparently abandoned in the later second century, and what is the mysterious dark earth that sometimes overlies their remains and underlies late Saxon and early medieval features? These and many other fascinating questions are probed by (the author) in his magesterial study of Roman London." Previous owner's small stamp mark on front pastedown, one small and one tiny corner bump with slight migration into adjacent pages. Dust jacket has very light rubbing, light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds.
