Product Description

Roman Roads in North-West Wales is a new publication by Gwynedd Archaeological Trust. It describes the results of a ten-year project that has reassessed all of the evidence for Roman roads in the region and has resurveyed the known surviving portions. The evidence comes from well over a hundred years of previous work by a wide range of researchers, the results of the Trust's Cadw grant-aided Roman roads project and the latest discoveries from geophysical and Lidar survey. The book examines the distinctive archaeology of Roman roads in the upland regions. These are very different to the well- known roads running in straight alignments through the lowlands of England but are still recognisably Roman. The book is well illustrated and carefully referenced and should appeal to newcomers to the subject and experienced researchers alike The author, David Hopewell is a Senior Archaeologist at Gwynedd Archaeological Trust. He has published both academic and popular articles on a wide range of archaeological topics and specialises in the archaeology of Roman Wales and geophysical survey.

The Romans are forever associated with their roads. Master surveyors and engineers, they left behind a network of roads across Britain which in many cases form the basis of the modern road system. These roads appear in fables, legends, folkore and poetry. They have also been the subject of intensive research for over a century. But the Roman roads of north-west Wales have been poorly understood until recently, with many routes disputed or completely unknown.

This book is the result of a ten-year project that has re-examined the evidence for all the roads in the region, both on the ground and in the archives. There have been many new discoveries -- and a few suprises along the way.

DAVID HOPEWELL, the author, is a senior archaeologist at Gwynedd Archaeological Trust. He has published academic papers and popular articles on a wide range of archaeological topics and specialises in the Archaeology of Roman Wales and geophysical survey. His work on a long-term project examining Roman forts, settlements, landscapes and roads has produced many exciting and important new discoveries.
