The Roman period was Britain's great architectural age, though this is difficult to appreciate from the ruinous state of the sites that survive. This book looks at how in a few years Britain witnessed the design and erection of an astonishing range of buildings, from mundane and functional houses through to temples and civil engineering projects.
