ET Artis & The Durobrivae of Antoninus


Edmund Tyrell Artis & the Durobrivae of Antoninus is a facsimile edition of the famous set of plates first published by Artis in 1823. It includes an introduction by Dr Stephen Upex both to Artis and to the plates.

The illustrations are reproduced in colour on high quality paper. The A4 page size provides good definition and in fact many open out to twice this size.


Originally issued to subscribers in instalments over a period of 5 years, the surviving copies are often incomplete, of variable quality, and hard to find. This complete compilation marking their 200th anniversary makes them accessible to all.


With the late Geoff Dannell, Stephen Upex has spent decades piecing together the life and works of ET Artis. His research interests spanned many topics and he left his mark on both palaeontology and archaeology. The Durobrivae provides an illustrated account of his excavations and finds in the Nene Valley in and around Castor, near Peterborough.
