About the Author

Mike McCarthy retired from the U.S. Air Force as a colonel in 1990, finishing his military career as chief of staff at Luke Air Force Base in Arizona.


"Books still tend to be written about the material culture of the wealthy end of the Romano-British social spectrum, not the peasant's hovel...Hooray then for Fellow Mike McCarthy's book, which assesses what we know about what New Labour politicians used to refer to as 'hard-working families', the ordinary people of Roman Britain, struggling to survive and sustain their families." -- Society of Antiquaries of London Online Newsletter Society of Antiquaries of London Online Newsletter "This well-written and enjoyable volume asks interesting questions and indicates useful areas for future research about daily life for free, semi-free and unfree peasant families during the period of Roman occupation of Britain." -- Landscape History Landscape History There is considerable food for thought in this book and I hope it provokes scholars to ponder the scenarios and seek evidence to build upon the framework. -- Bryn Mawr Classical Review Bryn Mawr Classical Review Though not the first study to look beyond the Roman army and administrative and town elites to the archaeology of the peasant, this is, perhaps, the first to give the evidence a coherent consideration. -- British Archaeology British Archaeology The idea behind this book is a good one and M. is to be congratulated in shedding some light on the lives of the poorest in Roman Britain -- John Manley Britannia
