London is one of the world's great cities, and it was founded by the conquering Romans, not to be a garrison or a fortress, but to be the centre of government, and built on a specially-chosen site in the midst of untamed, unhibitated forest. To show the roots and origins of the contemporary capital, Dr. Morris has written an account of the first six hundred years of London's history, from pre-Roman to Saxon times. Like no other study of Roman Britain, this book expertly reveals the close connexions between the foundation and growth of London and the Roman world in which it was set. This portrait of early London, carefully constructed from both archaeological and documentary sources, reveals what kind of Roman city was laid out at London and how it developed; it recreates what life was like in the streets, houses and buildings. By combining the rigorous approach of a leading scholar with the flair of an accomplished writer, John Morris has succeeded in reconstructing the forces and movements that made London live. Illustrated. 384 pp. (We carry a wide selection of titles in The Arts, Theology, History, Politics, Social and Physical Sciences. academic and scholarly books and Modern First Editions, Reference books, and all types of Academic Literature. )
