The stability and amuence which, over 400 years, the Roman Empire had brought to Britain led to unimagined wealth for many of the British themselves. Huge sumptuous villas sprang up where only small farmsteads had stood before. Mosaic floors, central heating, bath-houses were added. The rich dined off peacocks, dormice, pigeons fattened on white bread chewed by slaves.
It was to last forever. But something went wrong and in the space of about 80 years it all fell apart. There was corruption, invasions, piracy; an end to money, wealth, power.
