Curse tablets and the Romanization of Britain

Curse Tablets and the Romanization of Britain focuses on the underutilized defixiones of Britain in order to better understand the social history of Roman Britain. The Greco-Roman practice of creating curse tablets was adopted by the Britons, but with significant modifications, including their use, language, and physical properties. The tablets indicated that the Romano-British religion retained far more of its Celtic nature than previously thought. The tablets also give rare insight into the daily life of Roman Britain.
