Abstract and Keywords

This chapter explores various approaches to gender, status, religion, and ethnicity within military communities in Roman Britain. It argues that the rich array of data found in and around the forts and fortresses offers a valuable opportunity to look afresh at how identities were defined and constructed. New approaches to this data have played a valuable role in counterbalancing the traditional focus on the official structures of Roman power, by offering a sense of the diversity of responses to these structures among soldiers and their dependants.

Keywords: Roman army, identity, military community, cult practice, votive deposition
