Agnieszka Tomas, Living with the Army I, Civil Settlements near Roman Legionary Fortresses in Lower Moesia, Institute of Archaeology, University of Warsaw, Warsaw 2017


This monograph presents the civilian settlements at four legionary camps located in the Roman province of Lower Moesia: Novae, Oescus, Durostorum and Troesmis. Based on archaeological and epigraphic evidence, the book presents in detail the remains and proof of extramural settlement at Novae as case study, as compared to three other Lower Moesian sites. In each case, topography, the current state of research, the unearthed remains in the vicinity of these fortresses, as well as various written evidence on the subject are presented and critically evaluated.
This book is a first attempt at the evaluation of the extramural settlement in the area of the Lower Danubian provinces.
A number of issues related to these settlements are discussed against the backdrop of the problems of extramural settlements near Roman military bases in general.
The publication includes 60 figures, maps and plans, 4 charts and 17 tables.
