Overview

This is the first comprehensive catalogue of the sculpture from this region of Roman Britain. The sculptures were carved locally, and provide an index of Romanisation in the far north-west of the Roman Empire—in particular at Devra (Chester), Viroconium (Wroxeter), and at Letcetum (Wall, Staffs). The works range in quality from highly accomplished and decorative altars and tombstones, to rather ham-fisted efforts which hint that it was not always possible to attract sculptors to these relatively remote places. Such factors are discussed in an extended introduction.
