Why should a distant island beyond the north-western edge of the Roman Empire have become the target of Roman ambitions for conquest? 

Roman archaeologist, Richard Hingley, provides a new narrative of the Roman conquest of Britain, from the two campaigns of Caesar up until the construction of Hadrian's Wall across the Tyne-Solway isthmus during the 120s CE. 

Richard is interviewed by Illustrated Talk.
