Abstract and Keywords

A significant proportion of the people who lived in Roman Britain were linked to the military either as soldiers, dependants or suppliers. Did the objects these people used in their daily lives identify them as being from a military milieu? How did the Roman soldiers’ armour and weapons differ from those of the Britons? This chapter investigates the assemblages of artefacts found on military sites, discusses how they got there and what they tell us about war and peace in Roman Britain.

Keywords: legionaries, auxiliaries, civilians, Britons, weapons, armour, artefacts
