THIS volume on Roman Britain and the English settlements is the first (though not the first to be published) in a series of fourteen covering the history of England, edited by Prof. G. N. Clark. The full-dress treatment of the theme commences with Caesar's invasion, but this is preceded by a thirty-page introduction in which the geographical background and the prehistory of Britain are sketched in. Prof. Collingwood's contribution carries us through the Roman period into the fifth century; there Mr. J. N. L. Myres picks up the story, discussing that same century from the Anglo-Saxon point of view, and then the general problems of the English Settlement.
