Not what I expected,
This review is from: Vindolanda: A Roman Frontier Fort on Hadrianís Wall (Paperback)
The title displayed on the Amazon site led me to think that this would be a book describing the daily lives of people who lived at Vindolanda when in fact it was a detailed description of the excavations and finds there. As such it was possible to extrapalate something of eating habits, work etc. but I found Anthony Baileys book Garrison Life at Vindolanda gives more of an impression of the daily life.
The book needs to be retitled Vindolanda; excavation of a Roman Frontier fort.

With reference to the comments re. the title of the book - it is actually called Vindolanda: a Roman Frontier Fort on Hadrian's Wall.
Nowhere does 'Everyday Life on Rome's Northern Frontier' appear on the cover or title page.
