Life and letters on the Roman frontier : Vindolanda and its people by Alan K Bowman( Book )

32 editions published between 1994 and 2011 in English and held by 649 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Over three hundred letters and documents have recently been discovered at the fort of Vindolanda, written on wooden tablets which have amazingly survived nearly 2000 years. Painstakingly deciphered by Alan Bowman and J. David Thomas, they have contributed a wealth of evidence for daily life in the Roman Empire." "From the military documents we learn of the strength and activities of the units stationed at Vindolanda. The accounts testify to the lifestyle of officers and ordinary soldiers, with payments for pepper and oil, towels and tallow, boots and beer. Then there are snapshots of domestic life in letters between the officers' wives, including a birthday invitation (see front cover). Most fascinating of all is the evidence for a high level of literacy in the Roman army, where even someone of humble rank receives a letter from home promising him a parcel of socks."--BOOK JACKET

The Vindolanda writing-tablets : (tabulae Vindolandenses II) by Alan K Bowman( Book )

45 editions published between 1974 and 2003 in 3 languages and held by 443 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The wooden writing-tablets discovered at the fort of Vindolanda, near Hadrian's Wall, make an outstanding contribution to knowledge of the history of Roman Britain in the period between AD 90 and c.120. Such a concentration of large numbers of tablets at one site is unique and only a handful of wooden leaf tablets written in ink were known before the discoveries at Vindolanda. The Vindolanda tablets include by far the largest group of Latin letters from the Roman Empire." "The present volume contains the first full, authoritative editions of the ink texts which were discovered in the excavations carried out between 1991 and 1994. The editions are accompanied by translations and full commentaries on points of palaeographical, linguistic and historical interest." "The tablets include military documents, accounts and correspondence. The military reports and the accounts contain invaluable information about the way in which the Roman army organised the occupation of a newly acquired frontier area and provided the officers and soldiers of the Tungrian and Batavian units which formed the garrison at Vindolanda with a technological infrastructure and a wide range of foodstuffs and other goods. Much of the personal correspondence bears on the official and private concerns of the officers, their families and their slaves."--BOOK JACKET

Images and artefacts of the ancient world by British Academy( Book )

12 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 235 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this genuinely productive interdisciplinary dialogue, engineering scientists, archaeologists and historians discuss how recent exciting developments in imaging, image analysis, and image display/diffusion can be applied to three-dimensional objects of material culture from the classical world, ranging from inscribed writing tablets to buildings and urban sites." "The fifteen papers explore the ways in which the scientific contributors and the historians are thinking about subjectivity of interpretation, visual cognition, and the need to improve the presentation of evidence so as to feed directly back into their own scientific thinking and to encourage genuine innovation in developing methods of image-enhancement and the interpretation of objects."--Jacket

The Roman agricultural economy : organization, investment, and production by Alan K Bowman( Book )

18 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in English and held by 205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is a collection of studies which presents new analyses of the nature and scale of Roman agriculture in the Mediterranean world from c. 100 BC to AD 350. It provides a clear understanding of the fundamental features of Roman agricultural production through studying the documentary and archaeological evidence for the modes of land exploitation and the organisation, development of, and investment in this sector of the Roman economy. Moving substantially beyond the simple assumption that agriculture was the dominant sector of the ancient economy, the volume explores what was special and distinctive about it, especially with a view of its development and integration during a period of expansion and prosperity across the empire. The papers exemplify a range of possible approaches to studying and, within limits, quantifying aspects of Roman agricultural production, marshalling a large quantity of evidence, chiefly archaeological and papyrological, to address important questions of the organisation and performance of this sector in the Roman world
