Description - Roman Military Clothing by Graham Sumner

This first book in a two-part study offers a fascinating new review of little-known evidence regarding the clothing of the Roman Army, from the late Republic to the end of the early Empire. The author-illustrator draws upon written, pictorial, sculptural and archaeological sources to reconstruct the appearance of the Roman soldier on all those occasions when he was not concealed by armour - that is, on most days throughout his career. This detailed account by an expert in his field, is accompanied by numerous illustrations and eight full colour plates.
