This text concentrates on the temporary Roman camps that were constructed, of which over 130 have been discovered in England. In this study, each of the camps is described and illustrated with photographs and plans. An introductory essay sets out how the army chose the site for each camp, and the ways in which the lie of the land affected the design of the defences. This book should be of interest to all those who wish to know more about the archaeology of the Roman Empire, the practicalities of ancient warfare and the workings of the military mind.
