61 Brewer, Richard, J. (Ed. ) ROMAN FORTRESSES AND THEIR LEGIONS Papers in Honour of George C. Boon, FSA, FRHistS
National Museums and Galleries of Wales/Society of Antiquaries of London 2000 0854312749 / 9780854312740 Hardcover Fine in Fine dust jacket 
Occasional Papers of the Society of Antiquaries of London, No. 20; 208 pages; Roman Fortresses and their Legions had its origins in a conference held in 1992, and contains 11 papers by leading Roman military archaeologists on the fortresses of Roman legions from Britain, Germany and the Danube region to the eastern empire. It will appeal to both general and specialist readers interested in Roman military archaeology. Historians, including the pioneer antiquaries, have long realised that the study of the legions is fundamental to our understanding of the history of the Roman Empire. The essays in this volume, contributed by some of today's foremost scholars of Roman army studies, range across the whole of the Roman Empire - including Britain, the Danube lands and the eastern provinces - and cover a wide variety of themes. Authors effectively combine evidence derived from ancient sources and inscriptions with the rapidly growing amount of information and detail obtained from archaeological excavation. The volume covers the period from Augustus, when the plans of permanent legionary fortresses were beginning to evolve, to the Late Empire, when the legion was a very different body from that with which we are familiar in the early imperial period. The essays are dedicated to the late George C Boon FSA, FRHistS to mark his vast contribution to Roman scholarship.

74 Burns, Thomas S. ROME AND THE BARBARIANS, 100 B.C.--A.D. 400
The Johns Hopkins University Press 2003 0801873061 / 9780801873065 Hardcover Fine in Fine dust jacket 
Ancient Society and History; 1.57 x 8.5 x 5.91 Inches; 480 pages; The barbarians of antiquity, so long a fixture of the public imagination as the savages who sacked and destroyed Rome, emerge in this colourful history as a much more complex - and far more interesting - factor in the expansion, and eventual unmaking, of the Roman Empire. Thomas S. Burns marshals an abundance of archaeological and literary evidence, as well as three decades of study and experience, to bring forth a wide-ranging account of the relations between Romans and non-Romans along the frontiers of western Europe from the last years of the Republic into late antiquity. Looking at a 500-year time span beginning with early encounters between barbarians and Romans around 100 BC and ending with the spread of barbarian settlement in the western Empire around AD 400, Burns removes the barbarians from their narrow niche as invaders and conquerors and places them in the broader context of neighbours, (sometimes bitter) friends and settlers. His nuanced history subtly shows how Rome's relations with the barbarians - and vice versa - slowly but inexorably evolved from general ignorance, hostility and suspicion toward tolerance, synergy and integration. What he describes is, in fact, a drawn-out period of acculturation, characterized more by continuity than by change and conflict and leading to the creation of a new Romano-barbarian hybrid society and culture that anticipated the values and traditions of medieval civilization.
