It offers an original, multidimensional perspective on the social, economic, and cultural functioning of the Roman villa, locating it as the dual core of a rural estate and of cultural activity in the post-conquest landscapes of the Gaul and southeastern Britain. Themes discussed include the economic basis of villa-dominated landscapes, rural slavery, town-country dynamics, the role of monumental burials in villa landscapes, as well as self-representation and lifestyles of villa owners.

This study also offers a new interpretation of mortuary evidence found in Roman villas of the region.
