There were not many disadvantages from Roman rule in Britain.

The Romans revolutionised British agriculture. They introduced vegetables (asparagus, cabbages, carrots, celery, garlic, leeks, onions, peas, radishes, turnips, shallots) herbs (bay, basil, rosemary, thyme and savoury mint and herbs that were used in brewing and for medicinal purposes). They also introduced new and more productive grains which made bread became important in the British diet. They brought white cattle, brown hare, chickens, guinea fowl, pheasants, and rabbits were probably introduced as farmyard animals. The fruit they introduced included apples (as opposed to crab apples), grapes, cherries, mulberries and Pears. They also brought walnuts and sweet chestnuts

.

The Romans also built roads, aqueducts, sewers, public toilets, public baths and public buildings. They also bought metals from the British mines and imported amphorae and olive oil. The Roman troops stationed in Britain bought food and goods from the locals. There were no recorded British rebellions after Boudicca's rebellion.

When and which Roman emperor made Britain part of the Roman empire?

All Roman emperors had control over Britain after its conquest and annexation to the Roman Empire (46 AD for the south of England, 76 AD for Wales and and 79 AD for the north of England). All Roman emperors had control over the whole of the Roman Empire, except when there were usurper emperors. There were three usurpers in Britain: Carausius (286-93), Magnum Maximus (usurper in Britain and Gaul, 383-84) and Constantine III (usurper in Britain and Gaul, 407-09). There was also a 14 year period when there was a breakaway empire, the Gallic Empire (260-74) which comprised Britain and Gaul and had eight emperors.
