The Romans in Britain
Stunning remains of monumental architecture can be seen across the British Isles: from excavated Roman villas like Fishbourne in southern England, to Hadrian's Wall and its many milecastles stretching across Cumbria and Northumberland, to the well-preserved legionary fort layout at Ardoch in central Scotland. Their road networks and urban landscapes have formed the basis for many key cities and transport routes that dominate Britain today. This documentary provides an overview of Roman Britain and its legacy. Featuring Roman historians and archaeologists Simon Elliott, Barbara Birley, Adrian Goldsworthy, Catherine Nixey, Miles Russell and Lindsay Powell.
