Ad Vallum: Papers on the Roman Army and Frontiers in Celebration of Dr Brian Dobson

Adam Parker


This volume is intended as a Gedenkschrift to celebrate the work and legacy of Dr Brian Dobson. The papers are provided by members of the Hadrianic Society, which Brian was instrumental in setting up over 40 years ago, and represent a range of Roman scholarship by current and former university professors, museum and post-excavation professionals, field archaeologists and non-professionals. The range of papers is indicative of the range of interests held within the Hadrianic Society and those of Brian himself, but focus on the Roman army and Roman frontiers, particularly Hadrian’s Wall.

149 pages, Illustrated throughout in colour and black and white. 7 tables, 56 figures (6 in colour)
