TRAVIS (H. & J.)



208pp., 16 colour plates, 92 figs., P.B. 2015 reissue.

The shields used by the historic Roman stalwarts, drawing on their expertise, their wealth of illustrated material and the world of re-enactments. Roman Shields combines sculptural imagery and archaeological ‘hard’ evidence, while also looking at the component parts, how they are physically put together, and attempting to reproduce the aspects of the artefacts observed through reconstructing them and subjecting them to regular use and combat conditions.
