Although sieges were an important part of classical warfare, most attention in the past has been focused on the siege train and its related engines, instead of the structural evidence of field works raised during siege operations. Using a wide range of archaeological evidence form all parts of the Roman Empire (Britain, Spain, Italy, Albania, Turkey, Israel, Jordan),Gwyn Davies explains the components of Roman siege warfare, from preparatory works and blockade camps to circumvallation, assault ramps, siege mounds, and mines. His well-illustrated book is completed by an annotated Gazetteer of key siege sites.
