Product description


This first book in a two-part study offers a fascinating new review of little-known evidence regarding the clothing of the Roman Army, from the late Republic to the end of the early Empire. The author-illustrator draws upon written, pictorial, sculptural and archaeological sources to reconstruct the appearance of the Roman soldier on all those occasions when he was not concealed by armour - that is, on most days throughout his career. This detailed account by an expert in his field, is accompanied by numerous illustrations and eight full colour plates.

About the Author

GRAHAM SUMNER, who both wrote and illustrated this book, was born in 1958 and studied illustration at Wrexham Art School. He has specialised in archaeological reconstruction drawings; and has been involved with the Ermine Street Guard - the Roman experimental history group - for nearly 20 years. He has published a number of articles on the Roman army, and was the author of the popular Roman Army: Wars of the Empire (Brasseys). This is his first book for Osprey.
