About the Author

Louise Revell is a lecturer in Roman Studies at the University of Southampton, and specialises in Roman public architecture and urbanism. Her research interests include the relationship between identity, ideology and imperialism, and their expression through material culture. Her work on buildings concentrates on social space as a way of understanding questions of integration and social differentiation. Her book Roman Imperialism and Local Identities explores the relationship between Roman identities and daily practice as experienced through public architecture in Iberia and Britain. She is co-editor of The Oxford Handbook of Roman Britain.


[Revell]'s command of the theory is to be commended, as is her ability to introduce the middle range between the latter and the data. On this basis alone, the book should be required reading for those interested in the culture of the Western provinces. * Journal of Roman Studies *
This book constitutes a valuable overview of current identity studies as applied to the western Roman provinces... It is likely to prove enormously useful to researchers, especially undergraduate students and anyone trying to gain an initial insight into this complex and fast-growing field. * Antiquaries Journal *
A monograph with such a wide-ranging geographical and temporal scope, and one which presents this material with keen attention to theory ... The book will also be useful for undergraduate and graduate courses about the Roman world. The writing style is accessible and jargon-free. The substantial overlap in archaeological, epigraphic, and historical material will provide reading for fruitful cross-disciplinary discussions. Most importantly, Revell's notion of identity grounded practice will help push the tired discussion of identity towards more innovative research about lived experience and community formation in the Roman world. * Bryn Mawr Classical Review *
