From the legionary fortress at York to the coastal lookout towers on the coast, and from the artisan potters of Crambeck to the brooch makers of Castleford, the history of Yorkshire has an indelible mark left upon it by the Roman period. The Romans built towns, forts, roads and ports and lived, worked and died in Yorkshire for over three centuries. Roman emperors even visited it.


This book introduces, in an accessible way for all interested readers, the incredible archaeology that they left behind, from beautiful and unique objects to whole cities. Supported by high-quality illustrations throughout, this is the perfect starting point for anybody interested in the astonishing treasures the Romans left behind in Yorkshire.
