Roman Britain and the Roman Navy.

Mason, D.J.P.

Paperback. 224 pp. Illustrated. The History Press. 2009.

So much has been written about the Roman army in Britain that the vital role of the navy- both in support of the army and in the defence of this distant Roman province- has beeb largely overlooked. 
In providing the first comprehensive account of the Roman navy's importance in the conquest and defence of Britain, David Mason has redressed the balance. Combining archaeological evidence from recently excavated ships and harbour works with information  from ancient sources, the author demonstrates the fleet's vital importance to the success of the Romans military conquest.
he also provides new insights into the logistics and tactics of the Roman naval forces and their close cooperation with the Roman army.
