Description - The Archaeology of Roman York by Adam Parker
When the 9th Roman Legion arrived in AD 70 they built a fortress - this huge military camp formed the foundation of the modern city of York. Roman soldiers were garrisoned in the city for over three centuries and a huge provincial town grew up around them. Eboracum was a city at the edge of Empire; it was a seat of power visited by Roman Emperors, a thriving metropolitan hub and a cultural and technological boiling pot. This book introduces the archaeology of Eboracum - the people, the places, and the objects all discussed in an accessible way and illustrated with high resolution imagery.
