The Romans are coming! Summary

The Romans are coming! by Paul Mason

The fearful Romans are coming! Invaders and Raiders: Romans describes the Roman invasion and settlement of Britain from the viewpoint of a native Celt. The all-conquering Roman army, Roman daily life and customs are all explored against a backdrop of fierce fighting, surrender and life under Roman rule. The book concludes with a look at the Roman legacy in Britain and the eventual fall of the Roman Empire. Illustrated with a mix of illustrations and found objects, each book describes a great civilisation, its customs and organisations, how it began and expanded, and finally how it ended.

About Paul Mason

Paul's books cover a wide range of subjects, from whether the Romans ate crisps to how to build the world's best skatepark, but he writes mostly about sport. Whether you are interested in swimming, cycling, snowboarding, surfing or another sport, Paul has probably written something that will inspire you to get out and give it a try. Paul writes in a shack by the beach, which he shares with his one-eyed surf dog, Daisy.
