Fiona MacDonald studied history at Cambridge University and at the University of East Anglia. She has taught in schools, adult education and universities, and is the author of numerous books for children on historical topics.From School Library Journal:
Grade 6-8-Macdonald covers the who, what, where, when, why, and how of Roman fort construction and use between the years 50 B.C.-A.D. 200. Full-color, detailed drawings and diagrams are an integral part of the presentation. A wealth of information can be obtained from the blocks of text and numerous cutaways showing the inside and outside of buildings. The easy-to-read topical approach will appeal to general readers and report writers. This title answers many questions about living conditions and weapons of Roman soldiers. A glossary of terms, including English words that came from Latin, is appended.
