Launch of Handbook to Legionary Fortresses

“Handbook to Legionary Fortresses” by M.C. Bishop

   Archived 16/3/13

Whilst we are hoping that a copy of this might be winging its way onto our library shelves, I thought members might be interested in this for their own collections. Containing over 100 diagrams, full colour photographs and site maps, this authoritative handbook details every known legionary fortress in the empire – around 85 in total. Written by an internationally recognized specialist in this field, the book is accompanied by a particularly useful website which provides online links to sites relevant to particular fortresses as well as stunning aerial views of all the known fortress locations. The book is published by Pen & Sword Books, Barnsley, and is on offer on their website for £15.99 + £4 p&p.
