Osprey Men-at-Arms 390 : Roman Military Clothing (2) 200-400 AD

The armour and weapons of the Roman army have long been the subject of intense research and speculation. While much has been published on their arms and armour, however, the actual clothing of Imperial soldiers has largely been overlooked. In this second part of a rigorous study of the literary, sculptural, pictorial and archaeological evidence, the specialist author-artist examines the clues which enable us to attempt reconstructions of tunics, cloaks, trousers and other items worn by officers and men all over the empire during the two centuries between the reign of Septimius Severus and the twilight years of Stilicho. Like his much-praised first book (MAA 374), this text is illustrated with meticulous drawings of surviving sculptures, and striking colour artworks; it also includes photographs of rare early textile finds. Text by Graham Sumner with illustrations by Graham Sumner.
