This article examines the new evidence for specialisation in the Roman rural economy in the southern part of North West England. In order to understand the context of this specialisation the chronological pattern observed for rural and urban-type settlements within this area is reviewed. Then the evidence for rural specialisation is analysied. Finally, the role of the Roman army as a stimulus for the growth and subsequent decline in specialisation is discussed.
