Book Description

From the mid-first century AD to the end of the fourth century or later the tribal peoples inhabiting Wales and its borderlands felt the full impact of the might of the Roman imperial army, both as a fighting force and an occupation garrison. The position of Wales in the this period was that of a frontier district with a mainly military occupation. Its road-and-fort system provides a typical illustration of Roman defensive methods as applied to an 'open' frontier. The aim of the present work is to present a comprehensive review of the evidence relating to the Roman military conquest, organization, and occupation of Wales, including a descriptive survey of all Roman military sites, a summary account of the Welsh garrisons, a detailed study of the siting, distribution, and planning of the Roman stations, and a conspectus of the history of the occupation.
