Much of Roman Chester has been lost through post-Roman dismantling and 'recycling' of building materials although excavations over recent years has added substantially to our knowledge of the town known as Deva . David Mason traces the early history of this military stronghold, of the construction and early years of the fort and the development of the garrison town and the surrounding civilian settlement. This is essentially the first study to focus solely on Roman Chester, other than excavation reports, and it represents a well written informative history of the rise, florourishing and decline of the Roman town and its inhabitants. Originally published in 2001, with a different subtitle, the book is fully updated and somewhat expanded for this second edition which reflects all of the archaeological work, published and unpublished carried out in and around Chester in the intervening decade, including the author's own excavations in the suburb of Heronbridge.
