What the Romans Did for Us Summary

What the Romans Did for Us by Wilkinson Philip

From frescoes to fast food, bridges to bikinis, the Romans brought us a variety of innovations that changed the landscape of Britain and the lifestyle of its inhabitants for ever. The Romans were mass-producers, capitalists and bureaucrats who during their 400-year stay in Britain built dozens of towns and miles of roads, leaving a fascinating and complex legacy that forms the basis of much of our technology today.

Based on the BBC series of the same name, presented by Adam Hart-Davis, What The Romans Did For Us investigates the innovations that Romans brought to our shores and assesses their considerable impact on our lives. It features demonstrations and reconstructions of extraordinary Roman devices, and provides an alternative, dynamic history of the people that transformed Britain.

'The irrespressible Adam Hart-Davis.... has the energy and ingenuity to match the Romans...' Radio Times

'What makes any programme to do with Adam Hart-Davis fascinating is that he doesn't just tell you things... he actually gets his feet wet.' The Times
