This early work by R. G. Collingwood was originally published in 1922 and we are now republishing it with a brand new introductory biography. 'Roman Britain' is an informative work on Roman Britain and includes chapters on 'Town and Country Life', 'Art and Language', 'Religion', and much more. Robin George Collingwood was born on 22nd February 1889, in Cartmel, England. He was the son of author, artist, and academic, W. G. Collingwood. He was greatly influenced by the Italian Idealists Croce, Gentile, and Guido de Ruggiero. Another important influence was his father, a professor of fine art and a student of Ruskin. He published many works of philosophy, such as Speculum Mentis (1924), An Essay on Philosophic Method (1933), and An Essay on Metaphysics (1940).
