Product description


Writing as an engineer, as well as an archaeologist, he examines such topics as the structure and gradient of roads and the provision of bridges and drainage, showing how each influences the quality of travel and what changes have been needed to adapt to the way roads have been used; there is also a separate chapter on the changing layout of towns and cities.

About the Author

For most of his professional life Hugh Davies worked at the Transport Research Laboratory at Crowthorne. In retirement Hugh Davies received PhD from the University of Reading for his study of Roman roads in Britain, which became a very successful book, Roads in Roman Britain (Tempus 2002).
