Roman Military Signalling
There has never been a study of Roman signalling in English, nor has anyone previously tried to operate the techniques described in the classical manuals. David Wooliscroft is a specialist on Hadrian's Wall and an experienced air photographer. He is currently Director of "The Roman Gask project," a long-term program to study the Roman frontier on and around the Gask Ridge in Perthshire.
