Under Another Sky: Journeys is Roman Britain by Charlotte Higgins
Higgins is a classicist focused mainly on ancient Greece, but decided to take a road trip around her home of the U. K. to discover the remains and stories of Rome's northernmost frontier. She takes readers along for the journey from large towns, such as Bath, to remote mountain outposts now mostly forgotten. The Roman population of Britannia was quite diverse and sophisticated, and the author explores what they left behind with charm. Those with an interest in ancient history or archaeology will enjoy.
