Richard Alston, Soldier and Society in Roman Egypt. Soldier and Society in Roman Egypt provides a complete reassessment of the impact of the Roman army on local societies, and convincingly challenges the orthodox picture. The soldiers are seen not as an isolated elite living in fear of the local populations, but as relatively well-integrated into local communities. The unsuspected scale of the army’s involvement in these communities offers a new insight into both Roman rule in Egypt and Roman imperialism more generally. 2. Jan Assman, The Mind of Egypt.

Fantastic, in-depth look at the Roman military and its role in Egypt. Being in a reenacting/living history group that looks to re-create the Legion III Cyrenaica as it may have appeared in Egypt, this book is essentially our "textbook". We can't thank Alston enough for publishing this book.

This remarkable historical book tells of the Roman army in Egypt from the times of Augustus to Diocletian. The author discusses the economic, cultural, social and legal aspects of the military. He writes about legions, patterns of recruitment, veterans, before continuing with a description of the village of Karanis, located in the Fayium. Containing two helpful appendices, it is recommended for the serious interested student or scholar.
