Training the Roman Cavalry: From Arrian's Ars Tactica
Hyland, Ann

Hyland, Ann. Training the Roman Cavalry: From Arrian's Ars Tactica. Dover, NH: Alan Sutton 1993. 224p, some photos and line ills. Very good hardcover in very good d.j. ** Using a new translation of Arrian's military manual, Hyland describes Roman parade-ground training exercises (lance-throwing, close-order fighting, various galloping patterns, etc.). Many of them resemble today's games or movements, and she describes how she reconstructed and tried them. She also discusses other aspects of the Roman cavalry (selection of horses, equipment used, etc.). A lot of information is here! (Originally published at $52.00) Can be sent outside the U.S. for less than the default shipping rate. (Item ID: 7315)
