Drawing on many recent excavations throughout Gaul and Germany, this generously illustrated book--co-published with the British Museum--brings a wealth of archaeological findings to bear upon a crucial period in Roman history. The Roman provinces of Gaul and Germany cover present-day France, Belgium, and the Rhineland, together with parts of Switzerland and the Netherlands. Distinguished by their rich Celtic and Germanic heritage, they formed an important part of the Roman Empire. In this first general book on the region in many years, Anthony King has interpreted the most recent research data available to reconstruct the Romanization of the provinces until its eventual decline. This book will be keenly welcomed by the archaeological tourist as well as by classicists.
