Promotional Information

Roman roads were a vital component in the growth of the Roman Empire and the vast networks were a feat in engineering, design and construction.

About the Author

Hugh Davies graduated in Applied Mathematics at the University of Wales, Swansea in 1962 and spent much of his working life working as a scientist on various aspects of modern road design, retiring in 1994. Two years later he began a study of Roman roads, in the Archaeology and Classics Departments of Reading University, gaining a PhD in 2001. Since then he has written several books and articles, both on Roman roads and road-making in other periods of Britain's history. He is an Associate of the Royal Photographic Society. He is also the author of 'Roads in Roman Britain' and 'From Trackways to Motorways: 5000 Years of Highway History'.

Reviews

"Written by a civil engineer who wrote a PhD on the study of Roman roads, Roman Roads in Britain really is a perfect introduction to one legacy of Romano-Britain that can still be seen, and driven on, today... This book...is jammed with well-written, interesting information, detailing the vast network of roads that extended Rome's influence across its northernmost province, their construction and their maintenance." --British Heritage (July 2009)
