This book is an analytical examination of what we think we know and what we actually know (practically nothing) about the Roman invasions of Britain and there aftermath. It covers the ground from Caesar to the late forth century/5(13). John Peddie, a retired British infantry officer, has attempted to re-construct the Roman invasion of Britain in 43 AD by extrapolating from the fragmentary accounts of Cassius Dio and Tacitus.

The author uses "inherent military probability" to fill in the many gaps in the historical record and thereby produce a coherent campaign narrative/5(10).
