About this title


This survey has its origins in a study of the standing remains of Roman bridges at Chesters and Willowford, two of the places where Hadrian's Wall crossed major rivers in its course across the north of England. As well as giving a detailed record of the results of this programme of excavation and survey in advance of consolidation work, this volume ranges more widely over the field of Roman constructional techniques in an attempt to set the still visible and recorded remains of these bridges in context. Among the topics covered are the re-examination of the structural evidence provided by the stonework of the bridges themselves, detailed analysis of the construction techniques employed by the bridge builders, and a reassessment of antiquarian sources and other previous work. The volume ends with a look at evidence for other Roman bridges in the areas north and south of Hadrian's Wall, and a discussion of the developing communications system of which these bridges all formed a part.
