Product description


This companion volume to the author's "Roman Chester: City of the Eagles" is the first general account of Chester from the late Roman period to the Norman Conquest for over 30 years. It contains much new material from both archaeological excavations and historical research as well as new theories about early Cheater and its surroundings. David Mason tells the story of Chester, one of the great military centres of Roman Britain, from its disappearance into the obscurity of the 'Dark Ages' down to its emergence as Legacaestir as an important military, commercial and religious settlement of Anglian Mercia and subsequently of Anglo-Scandinavian England. As Cestre the town was refortified in c 907, and the author describes the everyday life of its inhabitants in the century and a half leading up to the Norman Conquest.
