Landscapes of Imperialism

Roman and native interaction in the East Anglian Fenland

Garrick Fincham


This work is ostensibly a study of the archaeology and history of a single Roman landscape – the Fenlands of East Anglia. However, it was also the author’s intention to consider the issues raised by the application of post-colonial theory to landscape archaeology. The aims of this study are thus two fold: to explore the nature of imperialism as practiced in the Roman Empire from a post-colonial perspective, and, secondly, to test a series of models generated in relation to the Roman Fenlands. The study as a whole is much concerned with an examination of Roman imperialism as it is with the detail of a particular case study.
