    1. The Roman Palace at Fishbourne is only a half hour drive from the house of my cousin Tony. He takes me there once every two years. Somehow we find something new on every trip.I read this book every ten years and discovery something new about the site and something new about Roman Britain every time.This is the first book of the now very famous Barry Cunliffe. You see a master's hand on every page.

    2. Well up to Barry Cunliffe's usual standard - academic rigour expressed with clarity in flowing prose.This is the definitive description of the Fishbourne site as excavated in the 1960s, describing the change from military entrepot to palace to comfortable villa eventually destroyed by fire.
