The Roman army's success was in large part founded on well-trained, well-disciplined soldiers who were equipped with the most advanced arms and armour then available. Using both ancient sources and modern scientific analyses, Sim and Kaminski present a study of the processes used to manufacture each component of that armour, together with an examination of Roman methods of extracting ores and transforming them into workable ferrous metal and copper alloy.
