Contents: Roman fortress studies ( W H Manning ); Exploration of Roman Chester 1962-1999 ( P Carrington ); Early Roman occupation ( D A Shotter ); Foundation of the legionary fortress: Deva, the Flavians and Imperial symbolism ( S J P Mason ); Town and port ( D J P Mason ); Sculpture in Roman Chester ( M Henig ); Presence and absence of soldiers in 4th-century Chester ( B Hoffmann ); Construction and operation of a legionary fortress ( D J P Mason ); Deva Victrix restored: the application of computer 3-D modelling techniques ( J Baum and D J Robinson ).
