about this item

The first in a mini series of books that studies the actual units stationed in each Roman province, reconstructing their appearance from the latest archaeological and documentary evidence that is interesting to modellers, wargamers, re-enactors, and the wide audience of all those interested in the Roman Army.At its height the Roman Empire stretched across Europe, North Africa and the Middle East, maintained by an army of modest size but great diversity. In popular culture these soldiers are often portrayed in a generic fashion, but continuing research indicates significant variations in Roman armour and equipment not only between different legions and the provincially-raised auxiliary cohorts that made up half of the army, but also between different regions within the empire. With reference to the latest archaeological and documentary evidence Dr D'Amato investigates how Roman Army units in the Western provinces were equipped, exploring the local influences and traditions that caused the variations in attire.
