    Martin Henig sets out to look at the provincials of southern Roman Britain in a new way, challenging the accounts of Roman authors and considering the experience of such figures as King Verica, who first appealed to Claudius for aid against other Britons, and the client king Togidubnus. As he discusses the six centuries following the arrival of the Romans, Henig traces their legacy in the distinctive forms of Latin and Christianity which survived beyond the Roman era into Alfred's Wessex.
