'This book presents for the first time a totally comprehensive guide to the visible remains of Roman Britain.  It is intended primarily for the non-specialist reader who has an interest in his country's past, but it will also be found useful by students of Roman Britain who seek precise information about all Roman excavations and earthworks that are permanently accessible.  Over 230 sites are described in full in the main text, and an additional 130 are listed in an appendix.  Nearly everyone has been personally visited by the author, who has also provided full details of access. There are ten chapters, each covering a separate area of the country, as well as an introduction, a list of museums, and a full bibliography.'
