"A brief, narrow-cast, but fascinating look at Roman garrison life along the Empire's northern frontiers in the early centuries A.D. The book's richly illustrated descriptions of fortifications, soldiers' daily life, and grand defensive strategy could hook military-minded teens."--School Library Journal"A richly detailed tour of Roman Britain from an accomplished author-archaeologist."--Smithsonian Magazine"Informative text with well-researched colored drawings and diagrams."--Cobblestone"Connolly's full-color architectural drawings show the sectioned living quarters of their home base so precisely that you could build them today, or easily picture just what the people of those days saw as they went about their daily business."--The News (Southbridge, MA)From the Publisher:
For more than 350 years the Roman Army maintained forts on Hadrian's Wall, as on all the other frontier zones of its huge empire. Excavations have now revealed what a typical fort looked like and how generations of soldiers lived, and died, to keep the Roman Peace intact. This work aims to bring the Roman fort to life and should be suitable for use in key stages 2 and 3 of the history National Curriculum.
