'While the individual sites are well described, historical settlement trends and wider contexts are only briefly discussed. As such the volume makes accessible—most of all through plans, photographs and artefact drawings—an indicative sample of Roman and Byzantine rural sites and provides an entry point into the more specialist literature.'
