Rosemary Aitken (born 1942) is an English author, who has written a number of academic textbooks and historical novels under her own name, and a series of whodunnits set in Roman Britain under the pen name of Rosemary Rowe. Her writings are similar to that of Philip Boast, Gloria Cook and Winston Graham.


Rosemary Aitken was born in Cornwall but spent much of her early life in New Zealand. Her professional career was spent teaching English Language and she has written a number of textbooks on this subject. Her first historical novel, The Girl from Penvarris, was published in 1995, the first in a series set in a fictional Cornish village.

Under the name Rosemary Rowe she has written a series of historical mysteries, set in and around the Roman town of Glevum, (modern-day Gloucester). The detective in the stories, named Libertus, is a pavement-maker, whose expertise in mosaic patterns parallels his skill in resolving puzzling crimes.
