Welcome to the website for VOREDA BOOKS: a small but perfectly formed micro-publisher specialising in quality fiction & non-fiction about Roman Britain. Home to attractive books, always a pleasure to readplus some nice maps.

Our niche might not be cut in stone, but it is inspired by the works of wonderful writers like Rosemary Sutcliff or Wallace Breem. So click on the main menu above for news of the latest archaeological finds – not to mention our developing range of titles & maps.

With more to come, since our latest publication – LAWYERS of LUGVALIO – had its official launch in summer 2021 at the Petuaria Revisited open day in Brough-on-Humber, East Yorkshire. Especially appropriate as site of the search for a lost Roman theatre previously mentioned in Clive Ashman’s MOSAIC.

And – apart from individual readers’ responses, online or otherwise – reviewed by the well-known Grasmere bookseller, Will Smith, for instance. In December 2021’s ‘CUMBRIA LIFE’ magazine, among his other Christmas choices. Or else selected by The Law Society Gazette’s own in-house reviewer, David Pickup, for his “BEST LAW BOOKS OF THE YEAR” selection of 2021 – see:
