About the book:

In the year 60 the Roman army crossed from North Wales to Anglesey to destroy the centre of Druid spiritual power which had lain behind resistance to the conquest of Britain. The bewildered soldiers were confronted by a frenzy and a noise which was a definition of barbarity and chaos - at least that was how the army saw it. Religion dominates our record of Roman Britain. Most of the surviving inscriptions record dedications to gods. Temples and shrines are recorded on inscribed slabs more frequently than any other class of structure. The religious sculpture, the inscribed religious texts and the religious artefacts provide us with almost all we know about the ordinary people of Roman Britain. This book is a narrative history of cult and belief in Roman Britain and what it tells us about the minds of men and women in that time, as well as what it tells us about the centuries before and afterwards.
