    Abstract

    THE Ford lectures of the late Prof. Haverfield were delivered at Oxford in 1907. At the time of their delivery it could be said by the man best qualified to judge, “that the enquiry into the history and character of Roman Britain, with all its defects and imperfectations, has been carried much farther than the enquiry into Celtic or Saxon Britain, much farther, too, than the enquiry into any other Roman province; and that our scientific knowledge of the island, however liable to future correction and addition, stands by itself among the studies of the Roman Empire.” It was, in fact, high time for such a summary of results and retrospect of the course of inquiry as might be expected from a Ford Lecturer.
