Roman Britain: Life at the Edge of Empire - Ric...
0,26 € *
zzgl. 3,99 € Versand

This is an accessible, highly illustrated introduction to the history, society, culture and art of Britain when it was a province of the Roman Empire. This is a readable and attractive presentation of Britain's Roman heritage. This is a high-profile subject, as 2010 is the 1600th anniversary of the end of Roman Britain. This title contains beautiful new photography of recently discovered artefacts. Based on the latest research, this is the first all-new book on this subject published by the British Museum in nearly 20 years. For nearly four centuries, Britain was a province on the outer edge of the Roman Empire and developed a distinctively Romano-British culture and way of life. Using the archaeological evidence, ancient written sources and the latest research on surviving artefacts from a child's leather shoe to fascinating letters, from the monumental bronze head of the emperor Hadrian to hoards of stunning gold and silver a picture of Roman Britain is brought vividly to life. Whether for a Roman soldier on the northern frontier or a native British farmer; for a pagan British king or a Christian Roman lady living in a villa, the diversity of lifestyles, experiences and cultures is revealed. Native British traditions of trade and craftsmanship merged with the imported Roman styles and practices to create a unique cultural synthesis, the legacy of which is still visible today in British landscapes, architecture, art and society. Ralph Jackson and Richard Hobbs are curators of Romano-British antiquities in the British Museum. Ralph Jackson is also author of BM Research Publication 181: Cosmetic Sets of Late Iron Age and Roman Britain, which will be published August 2010.

Bernard Cornwells großer Shakespeare-Roman: Eine phantastische Reise in das London von Elisabeth IEin ungeheuer spannender und farbiger historischer Roman über Eifersucht, Verrat, Liebe und die Kunst, wie ihn nur Bernard Cornwell schreiben kann.Der Winter 1595 ist kalt. Das macht auch den Mitgliedern der Theatertruppe von William Shakespeare zu schaffen, einer von vielen in London. Die Stadt ist seit längerem vom Theaterfieber ergriffen, neu entstandene Schauspielhäuser vor den Toren der Stadt fassen Tausende Zuschauer, die sich mit Bühnenstücken, Tanz, Zoten und dressierten Bären unterhalten lassen. Halbseidenes Gesindel sind diese Schauspieler in den Augen der puritanischen Obrigkeit, die alle Bühnen verbieten will. Aber viele im Hochadel lieben das Theater, und auch die Königin tut es.Zur Hochzeit einer hochgestellten Dame soll die Truppe ein neues Stück auf die Bühne bringen, eine Komödie mit dem Titel "Der Sommernachtstraum". Mit von der Partie: Richard, William Shakespeares jüngerer Bruder, vom Älteren wenig geliebt und auf der Bühne nur in Frauenrollen geduldet.Dann geschieht eine Katastrophe: Ein konkurrierendes Schauspielhaus lässt das Stück stehlen. Aber Richard weiß, wie die Uraufführung zu retten ist. Er wird das Stück zurückstehlen und damit William dazu bringen, ihn endlich zu respektieren, ihm endlich eine Männerrolle zu geben - und dann fehlt ihm zu seinem Glück nur noch die Hand der schönen Silvia...Vielleicht der größte Autor historischer Abenteuergeschichten, den die Gegenwart kennt. The Washington PostCornwell, Bernard Bernard Cornwell, geboren 1944 in London und aufgewachsen in Essex, arbeitete nach seinem Geschichtsstudium an der University of London lange als Journalist bei der BBC, wo er das Handwerk der gründlichen Recherche lernte (zuletzt als «Head of Current Affairs» in Nordirland). 1980 heiratete er eine Amerikanerin und lebt seither überwiegend in den USA. Weil er dort keine Arbeitserlaubnis bekam, verwirklichte er seinen lang gehegten Wunsch, Bücher zu schreiben. Im englischen Sprachraum gilt er als unangefochtener König des historischen Abenteuerromans. Seine Werke wurden in über 20 Sprachen übersetzt, Gesamtauflage: Mehr als 20 Millionen Exemplare. Die Queen zeichnete ihn mit dem «Order of the British Empire» aus.
