Product Overview

This volume is a collection of essays to celebrate the 90th birthday of Sheppard Frere, formerly Professor of the Archaeology of the Roman Empire at the University of Oxford. Most concern the archaeology of Roman Britain, which has been at the heart of Sheppard's research interests, and to which he has made such a distinguished contribution. The book covers such varied themes as early urban defences in Britain (Roger Wilson), the status of London(Roger Tomlin), the employment of civilian building-gangs on Hadrian's Wall (Michael Fulford), iron weapons from Newstead (W H Manning), military vici in Britain (Sebastian Sommer), the terminology and use of samian cups (Geoffrey Dannell), the text of a travel diary about the Antonine Wall in 1697 (Lawrence Keppie), attitudes towards conserving Hadrian's Wall for posterity (Christopher Young), and red-slip pottery from the Egyptian fort of Nag el-Hagar (Michael Mackensen). The book is completed by a new Bibliography of Sheppard Frere's publications "(compiled by Roger Goodburn and Sally Stow).
