Roman Military Signalling. 

D.I. Woolliscroft. 

Paperback.  191p, 80 b/w illus (Tempus 2001 reprint 2010). 

The defences of Rome's frontiers, often hundreds of miles long, were linked together by a communication network which included a sophisticated signalling system. This study combines engineering, science, military history, archaeology and experimental archaeology to explore the development of Roman signalling techniques from their Greek origins. Focusing on Hadrian's Wall and the German Limes, Wolliscroft demonstrates that each fort would have been able to signal to the next. The author's reconstructions of ancient equipment and recreations of Roman signalling methods across the Scottish and German landscapes enlivens this practical and accessible study.
