This is the No.1 website on Roman Britain
and all things Romano-British

The many index pages within RBO provide links to information on all aspects of Roman Britain, including many Classical references written by the ancient authors, individual pages for every major site of the period and lots of information about the surviving Romano-British archaeology, with details of ongoing Romano-British digs. The website is also liberally sprinkled with links to other notable websites having Romano-British themes. At the heart of the RBO website is a collection of maps of Roman Britain, showing, and providing detailed information on:

Our bibliography pages contain details of every literary reference work used in our historical research and also links to every online reference used during our cartographical, archaeological and technical researches. is still not run as a commercial concern and you will find absolutely no unwanted advert's on the RBO website. A new development, however, is the introduction of links to publishers of certain reference works which will appear in the bibliography section of each page. These links will allow RBO users to purchase the books online, while the publisher makes a small donation towards the upkeep of RBO.

RBO is not too proud to decline contributions from private individuals or reputable organisations who wish to sponsor the website. All donations thus recieved will only be used to maintain the running of the website and to fund connected Romano-British research projects. We absolutely guarantee that no money donations will be retained for the private use of any individual connected with RBO.
