When the Romans came to Britain in AD 43, they brought a new style of domestic life, one that better-off Britons soon copied.  This informative guide looks at how villas were built, and at the accommodation and daily life villa residents enjoyed – their living rooms and bedrooms, kitchens and baths, gardens and courtyards, furniture and food, and the servants and slaves who kept the villa running.
 
Illustrated with site photos from Roman villas around Britain, archaeological treasures, and museum reconstructions of villa interiors, this is a fascinating look at life in Roman Britain before the Roman army left in AD 406 and the villa way of life faded into history.
 
Includes a list of places to visit.
