With the help of over 100 illustrations, many of them little known, Dr Henig shows that the art produced in Britannia - particularly in the golden age of Late Antiquity - not only rivals that of other provinces but deserves comparison with the art of metropolitan Rome. After showing how a distinctive style emerged from the fusion of the Celtic and Roman traditions, he details the vital part played by art in the daily life of both the army and the civilian population. He also distinguishes carefully between the work of foreign artists in Britain, Romano-British and Romano-Gaulish provincial art (as well as other provincial styles) and the native British work of the period.
