Pagan Britain

Yale University Press

This chapter provides a brief overview of the Roman conquest of Britain and discusses the impact of Roman culture and various aspects of Roman rule. It the also examines some of the problems involved in determining the nature and extent of Roman impact on Britain's religious beliefs and practices. One aspect of Romano-British religion is that many of the native deities of the British were honoured. Sacred places or temples for Roman-British worship have been identified and despite their more recent date and sophisticated construction, the temples are more badly damaged than many of Britain's prehistoric sites.

Keywords:   Britain, religious beliefs, Romano-British, religion, deities, sacred places, temples
