#review 14 of 2018 The Roman Conquest of Britannia

My brief thoughts on a book I've just finished.

The Roman Conquest of Britannia by Charles River Editors

This was a fairly concise summary of the early history of the Ancient Romans in Britain. If you know very little of the invasions of the Romans, and only want a broad overview, then you’ll find this a readable and informative book, without too much fine detail to slow down the reading pace.

I had already read of most of what was written in this book but it was good for me as a recap. 

Though the coverage of the establishment and rise of Londinium was very brief that part was of interest to me.

Though, as with most books on Roman Britain, details are very scant for northern Britain which is of greater interest to me.
