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.
"An utterly original history, lyrically alive to the haunting presence of the past and our strange and familiar ancestors." ( Sunday Times)"Mesmerising. Sophisticated and passionate. She personalizes the story in a diaristic, almost poetic tone." (Guardian)

Well intergrated travel narrative and history
- John S.
Probably not. The subject matter is of interest but the narrator's voice does not do justice to the material.
Can't think of any.
She drops her voice at the end of sentences, swallows words frequently and attempts very unsatisfactorily to imitate male voices. She may be successful with some types of fiction but certainly not with a book like this one.
Perhaps to read the book so that I can appreciate it more fully.
