 About the Book 

This volume, a collection of essays in honour of Harvey Sheldon, begins with a section on the chronology and cartography of Roman London. The second section examines the landscape and environment of Roman London and its hinterland, drawing from a variety of disciplines.The third part of the book examines themes which are more difficult to identify through the archaeological record, such as education, cults and attitudes to death and burial. In the fourth section of the volume, the rich material culture of Roman London is examined through a series of papers on artefacts, including brooches, inkwells and toilet implements.
