The Roman army in Britain left an archaeological legacy that is the envy of the rest of the Roman world. The forts fortresses and frontier defences are rightly celebrated but less well known are the temporary camps. These were constructed to house the army for short periods of time while on campaigns patrols and manoeuvres
Scotland contains a wealth of Roman camps and this book is a companion volume to earlier publications of camps in England and Wales. As the northern frontier zone of Britain subject to repeated campaigns by the Roman army the area possesses a wide and fascinating range of camp sites recorded both as earthwork remains and through cropmarkings from the air. The field evidence is discussed against the background of Roman army campaigns with each of the camps described and illustrated in a detailed gazetteer.
The book is illustrated throughout with plans maps and photographs and will be of interest to all those who wish to know more about the archaeology of the Roman army its campaigns in northern Britain and the ancient military mind.
