Michel Feugère

Paperback. 224p, b/w figs and pls (Engl edn Tempus 2002).

Technological advances, especially in fields such as metallurgy, brought about huge and far-reaching changes for the Roman army. Encounters with different enemies, fighting over different terrain, led to new fighting techniques and modifications in weaponry and armour. Using literary, iconographic and archaeological evidence, Feugère traces the appearance, adaptation, use and decline of weapon types from the early Republic to the decline of the Empire focusing on the land-based forces - the cavalry, artillery and infantry. A good well-illustrated overall study of Roman weaponry and the effects of military change on societies under Roman rule, first published in French in 1993.
