              The centuries after the end of Roman control of Britain in AD 410 are some of the most vital in Britain's history - yet some of the least understood. This title focuses on a world of ambition, brutality and violence in a politically fragmented land, and provides history of an age... that would transform Britain.

              Roman Britain is usually thought of as a land full of togas, towns and baths with Britons happily going about their Roman lives under the benign gaze of Rome. This is, to a great extent, a myth that developed after Roman control of Britain came to an end, in particular when the B...ritish Empire was at its height in the late nineteenth.

              Zone: Poems of the Bosnian War
                

              Zone: Poems of the Bosnian War (Paperback)

              The poems in Zone commemorate the dead and wounded of the wars in Bosnia-Herzegovina in the 1990s. The ironies of subverted signs, the contrasts of peace and war zones, the uncertainty of life for the poet and for the innocents, young and old, caught in the deadly conflict, are t...hemes re-lived in the poems. In sardonic or humorous observation, in anger and disbelief, in joy at being alive, and in language itself, human feeling is celebrated and deaths mourned. These compassionate and perceptive poems are accompanied by photos that are stills from video film taken by the poet. Stuart Laycock studied Classics at Cambridge. He has written history books including All the Countries We've Ever Invaded and has also been a writer in advertising and marketing. Over a period of three years during the Bosnian War he took part in seven aid missions to the country and he continued to visit Former Yugoslavia on aid missions long after the war.
