About the Author

"[This book] effectively challenges the overly positivist interpretive regimes in which Roman urbanism in Britain has been previously understood and demonstrates that human relationships to water, with particular emphasis on urban environments, are contingent and socially mediated beyond desires to rationalize and maximize." Eric E. Poehler, Bryn Mawr Classical Review 2014.04.18.
