"This book tells the story of the Treveri, a Gaulish tribe encountered in the pages of Julius Caesar, tracing from historical and archaeological sources the many changes caused by the process of Romanization. Pride of place is naturally taken by the city of Augusta Treverorum (the modern Trier or Trèves) which, founded in the reign of Augustus, grew to become an Imperial capital under Diocletian and was for some years the residence of Constantine the Great and his family. The upstanding Roman remains, eloquent of former greatness, are the finest north of the Alps and have earned the city the popular title 'Rome of the North'. But city and surrounding countryside formed an administrative and economic unit, and the pattern of country life, from humble peasants to the wealthy with their palatial villas, is given the attention which it deserves" (dust jacket).
