What has 'Roman Britain' meant to the British people since the Romans left? And what does Roman Britain mean to us now? How has it been reimagined, in story and song and verse? Charlotte Higgins leads us through the history, and by using some of Britain's most intriguing ancient monuments, Under Another Sky invites us to see the British landscape, and history, in an entirely fresh way.
'Mesmerising. Sophisticated and passionate. She personalizes the story in a diaristic, almost poetic tone.' GUARDIAN
'An utterly original history, lyrically alive to the haunting presence of the past and our strange and familiar ancestors.' SUNDAY TIMES
