I have not been able to translate this yet as this computer does not do "pdf".

I will figure out a way.

The book "The Roman Imperial Army" does give the locations of the legions in Briton, at least.

I do not think the romans counted on having a minimum of 4 Legions in Britain ad infinitum-as many as were kept on the Rhine Limes, but it speaks well of their respect of the Britons.

Also, I think, augustcu thought to keep only 28 legiones in the 'Army of the Principiate"--but I think, and hugh will correct me, that the losses in Trans Rhine Germany may he upped this to 30.

A kink ( or salient) in the Rhine Frontier known as the "Agri Decumantes" at the time when Imperial ambitions settled on this frontier may have made the frontier less defensible than thought.
