Product Overview

The later Roman period in the northern frontier zone of Britain is often seen as a time of declining standards, particularly in material culture. This volume, which brings together papers given at a conference held in Newcastle upon Tyne in 2008, considers whether the excavated material supports this view and how it can elucidate the life of the 4th-century limitanei of Britain. The papers presented cover not only the commonly found artefacts such as pottery, coins and brooches but also their wider context both geographically and temporally.

In particular, the artefacts are considered in the context of several recently excavated sites with well-understood structural phases. The authors conclude that, in fact, the later period was rich in artefacts that have much to tell us about the late frontier.

Finds from the Frontier includes papers by many of the leading finds specialists working on Roman material culture in Britain today, with unparalleled knowledge of Roman sites in both Britain and Europe.
