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.
