Description
Much of Roman Chester has been lost through post-Roman dismantling and ïrecyclingÍ of building materials, although excavations in recent years have added substantially to our knowledge of the town known as Deva. Mason traces the early history of this military stronghold, of the construction and early years of the fort and the development of the garrison town and the surrounding civilian settlement. His study, the first to focus solely on Roman Chester, represents a well written, informative history of the rise, burgeoning and decline of the Roman town and its inhabitants.
