Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



This article describes the ways in which both printed and digital forms of map have been used to help diagnose how Roman surveyors may have set out the lines of their roads across the landscape. Employing as a test bed the course of Roman Dere Street between the Vale of York and Newstead in Scotland, the processes of Roman road planning are interpreted and described. The possibility is then examined that these processes may have been applied to the planning of Hadrian’s Wall and the Antonine Wall in Scotland.
