Seven years after the Roman invasion of Britain in AD 43, Londinium was created. It would rise to become one of the most important Roman cities in northern Europe. "Life in Roman London" approaches the history of Roman London in an entirely new way. Rather than focusing upon a handful of important figures such as Procurators and statesmen, this book explores the lives and concerns of the ordinary citizens. Unlike many books about Roman history which are preoccupied with the basilicas, palaces, grand houses, statues and mosaics, "Life in Roman London" looks instead at the shops, houses and streets in which the majority of the sixty thousand inhabitants of the city spent their lives. In doing so, it reveals a city very different from the clean, white, classical metropolis familiar from the books of our childhood.
