Higgins is the Chief Arts Writer for the "Guardian". Includes 16 pages of illustration. 'Beautifully crafted...' Peter Stothard, "The Times"
What does Roman Britain mean to us now? How were its physical remains rediscovered and made sense of? How has it been reimagined, in story and song and verse? This book traces these tales by setting out to discover the remains of Roman Britain for herself, sometimes on foot, sometimes in a splendid, though not particularly reliable, VW camper van.
