Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 6-10-- Based on the excavation of a fort near Hadrian's Wall, this book is distinguished by excellent, detailed illustrations. The defensive walls, living quarters, and adjacent buildings are all detailed in the drawings. Subjects covered include the structure's physical construction, the military necessity for its placement, lives of average soldiers and commanding officers, and a brief overview of the historical context of the fort. Unfortunately, the accompanying text is not so lively. Readers with little background in Roman history and culture can expect no help in the form of a glossary or even any explanation of some of the more technical terms. Good maps are also lacking. Use this to supplement more comprehensive works or where pictorial representation is needed. --David N. Pauli, Missoula Public Library, MT

Review


"A brief, narrow-cast, but fascinating look at Roman garrison life along the Empire's northern frontiers in the early centuries A.D. The book's richly illustrated descriptions of fortifications, soldiers' daily life, and grand defensive strategy could hook military-minded teens."--School Library Journal


"A richly detailed tour of Roman Britain from an accomplished author-archaeologist."--Smithsonian Magazine


"Informative text with well-researched colored drawings and diagrams."--Cobblestone


"Connolly's full-color architectural drawings show the sectioned living quarters of their home base so precisely that you could build them today, or easily picture just what the people of those days saw as they went about their daily business."--The News (Southbridge, MA)

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Andrew J. Brozyna on January 9, 2007
Format: Paperback
All of Connolly's books are must-haves. I see the paperback versions of Roman Fort, The Legionary and The Cavalryman seem to be out of print. I have a feeling that these titles may reappear as a single volume sometime in the near future. Previous titles by this author, The Roman Army, The Greek Armies, and Hannibal and the Enemies of Rome first appeared as paperbacks in 1977-78. The content of these books came together in the single hardcover, Greece and Rome at War, in 1981. So, the same thing may be happening again.

Vindolanda along Hadrian's Wall will make no sense until you look at it from the perspective of this book. Connolly has a unique skill in bringing fragmentary archaeological evidence into a historically accurate visual representation. This is probably the best book of the series.
