Abstract/Summary

This is the third and final volume of New Visions of the Countryside of Roman Britain (2016-18). Drawing on the mass of new data deriving, in particular, from developer-funded archaeology since 1990, this presents a social archaeology of the rural population of Roman Britain in the context of the regional and chronological framework and the settlement hierarchy as defined in Vol. 1 of New Visions. Themes around the question of identity are addressed. They include dress and personal display, lifestyle and the domestic environment (eg variation in the built environment, eating and drinking, recreation and literacy), the relationship betweeen people and animals, both domesticated and wild, religion (eg sacred space, associated material culture, animal and plant remains), burial practice and the people themselves as revealed through osteological analysis (eg diet and the impact of daily stressors).
