A review By Chris Rudd

A History of Roman Coinage in Britain is a great book because it talks about Britain's Roman coins in a way that hasn't been done before - down to earth without being dumbed down - and it displays delightful images of these coins in a manner which hasn't been seen in any previous reference book: instead of showing glossy pictures of glamorous, pristine, mint-state coins, it shows them as they most often come out of British soil, corroded and with bits missing. I love the coin captions especially; each one contains a golden nugget of useful information. The production quality is impeccable too. I take my hat off to Sam Moorhead and Greenlight Publishing. It's a stunningly good book and I know it will be a screaming success. Why? Because it doesn't scream look at me, look how clever I am! It gets on with the job of being hugely helpful to the reader.

Medicine And Healthcare In Roman Britain

Summerton, Nicholas

In considering medicine in Roman Britain it is crucial not to be blinkered by modern views and values; health care must always be seen in context. Viewed from the twenty-first century perspective, it is easy to dismiss or denigrate some aspects of Roman medicine and yet to overstate others. How can we be confident that a bronze instrument was actually a surgical tool? Are aqueducts, drains and bath-houses really a reflection of roman concern for the public health? Should we so easily dismiss [...]

In considering medicine in Roman Britain it is crucial not to be blinkered by modern views and values; health care must always be seen in context. Viewed from the twenty-first century perspective, it is easy to dismiss or denigrate some aspects of Roman medicine and yet to overstate others. How can we be confident that a bronze instrument was actually a surgical tool? Are aqueducts, drains and bath-houses really a reflection of roman concern for the public health? Should we so easily dismiss dream therapy and other apparently bizarre treatments as being ineffective in the context of Roman Britain? In this book Dr Summerton has assembled and critically examines the archaeological, epigraphic and literary evidence for health care in Roman Britain, set in the context of the Roman Empire. [less]
