An Archaeological Visualisation

Simon James

  • Publishes a substantial area of an ancient city of global archaeological importance, making available to scholarship a major tranche of inaccessible information
  • Examines the only well-explored example of a major category of Roman military station, that of provincial urban bases, significantly broadening our picture of Roman military stations and communities
  • Provides rich archaeological and textual data of base and civil town to aid our understanding of the political, social, and economic dynamics between civil populations and imperial garrisons
  • An illustration-led project, conducted primarily through visual means
