"This book is a reassessment of the changes that occurred in the towns of Britain in the later Roman period, around the late third, fourth and early fifth centuries A.D. It is commonly argued that these changes represent decline in the later Roman Empire but this book suggests alterniative ways of interpreting late Roman towns and demonstrates that there are more positive ways of understanding late Roman archaeology. This is a much needed reanalysis bringing new understanding to this crucial period of history"--Provided by publisher
