The Romans in Britain for nearly four centuries, despite the fact that Britain was one of the last countries to be annexed as a Province and one of the first to be abandoned. The surprising fact that so few evidences, material or otherwise, of their occupation seem to remain. A comparison with other remains. Some features of interest to the student of comparative politics in looking at Britain as a Roman Province. A detailed historical review of this part of Britain's past, including historical figures, politics, the Roman-British population, military tenure, relative peace and prosperity for Britain during this time, Roman practices in terms of defence and security, sanitation of the camps, providing a pure water supply, the road system, municipal government, etc. Seeing a resemblance between the Roman Empire and the British Empire.
