What is included with this book?
Although often portrayed generically in media, decades of research have revealed a staggeringly diverse range of equipment and uniforms used by the Roman army, tracing how these changed through time and how regional deployment caused additional variation. This new title reveals the diversity in equipment and clothing in the Western Provinces across the Roman army, from legions to local scouts.
Packed with full-color, specially commissioned illustrations and information gleaned from the latest archaeological finds, this is a detailed and informed analysis of the Roman army and the equipment and clothing with which its troops were equipped.
