The stories illustrated in the mosaic pavements that have survived from Roman Britain graphically link us to the world of the Romans in a way that literature, with its nuances of interpretation, cannot.
Roman Britain has almost 200 mosaics. In this fully illustrated book Dr Patricia Witts opens up the stories of the mosaics to the modern reader, identifying the figures who remain, explaining what they would have meant to a contemporary viewer and discussing their significance.
