    1 thought on “Gods with Thunderbolts: Religion in Roman Britain

    1. A pragmatic overview of religion in Roman Britain. No flights of fancy, no high-status, ritual if we have no other explanation descriptions. Intelligent and absorbing and refreshing.

    2. Does what it says on the cover.Top illustrations, maps, and refs.Sources mainly archaeological, some textual stuff, but inevitably a load more stuff from Bath and near the walls than anywhere else.Mainly pre-xtian in focus.
