Roman Siege Works 

Davies, G.  

Paperback. 160p, b/w and col pls (Tempus 2006). 

Using a wide range of archaeological evidence from all parts of the Roman Empire (Britain, Spain, Italy, Albania, Turkey, Israel, Jordan), Gwyn Davies explains the components of Roman siege warfare, from preparatory works and blockade camps to circumvallation, assault ramps, siege mounds and mines. The inclusion of details from numerous classical literary sources ably supports the information provided by the archaeology studied. Throughout the book the author relates siege work construction to the general context of siege operations, and also explores the influence of foreign ideas on the Roman siege techniques that were employed across the empire.
