Chronology * The Great Wall * Military Equipment * The Plates
Michael Simkins is a respected author in the field of Ancient History, and he has written several titles for Osprey. He has a particular interest in, and knowledge of, the Roman Army in Britain, and is a keen re-enactor of this period. His interest extends to having personally recreated many of the weapon and armour pieces that the Roman leggionaire would have worn and used at this time. The late Ronald Embelton was one of the earliest and most talented illustrators to have worked with Osprey. His unique style combined action and realism with meticulous attention to detail, winning him much affection and respect.
