Britannia 51 (in press)
Publication year: 2020

Few historical events in the study of Roman Britain remain as enigmatic archaeologically as the evidence for Caesar’s landing in Kent. The edited volume, springing from a unique discovery of Caesarean camp ditches in Pegwell Bay on the Isle of Thanet, provides a comprehensive treatment of recent archaeological and numismatic work on Caesar’s conquest of Gaul. The book departs from traditional takes on the subject through abandoning the written sources-led and frontier studies centred approaches. Instead, the contributions pose a series of research question arising from the analysis of archaeological evidence and draw from approaches to Late Iron Age, benefitting from advances in archaeological science, experimental archaeology and development-led excavations.
