In this book, the uses of literacy in the province of Britannia are examined. The hypothesis that literacy was largely an accomplishment of an educated, literate, social elite is tested by examining surviving written evidence. The nature of this small sample of surviving written material is examined as are clues for who participated in its production. Material from four broad categories of human activity are analysed: religion, working life, funerary customs, personal, social and domestic life.
