Just found the following the sale at David Brown/Oxbow website.

Wilmott, Tony. Birdoswald: Excavations of a Roman Fort on Hadrian's Wall and Its Successor Settlements. English Heritage Archeological Report 14. London: English Heritage, 1997.

List price: $110
Sale price: $24.98

This is the published report of the 1987-1992 dig at Banna/Birdoswald, a well-preserved Roman fort on the Hadrian wall. I find that slowly digesting excavation reports is the single best way for me to deeply engage with the Roman past. When I find one cheap (and on a military site!), I'm apt to jump.
