Format: Paperback
An indispensable academic collection and interpretation of the archaeological finds, representational and documentary evidence from across the Roman Period and the Roman world.

In chapters from the Republican period up to the Dominate, Bishop and Coulston give a summary overview and illustrate the development of equipment forms and decoration with 150 detailed line drawings. They include a chapter on production technology and provide an historical context for the study of military equipment itself.

This is a serious academic study of interest to archaeologist and historian, fully referenced, based on considerable scholarship and with an enviable reputation - the second edition was also awaited very eagerly in the re-enactment community as an authoritative argument-settler!

Format: Paperback
This book is a God send. Too much information on the Romans arms and armour seems to derive from secondary sources but you get the feel from this book that you are right there.

The illustrations quite correctly eschew modern CGI type recreations and use more old fashioned but infinitely more revealing imagery of the artifacts.

The artifacts are arranged together by period which gives a great insight on how the various pieces of equipment as a whole set of kit evolved.

Thoroughly recommended read for those serious on the subject.

If you are seriously interested in the Roman army and its equipment, this is an absolute must. Excellent illustrations as well.
