This article is based on the research for my Masters thesis, which examined the consumption of beer and wine by the Roman army in Britain in the first century CE. I wish to thank Professor Simon Esmonde Cleary for supervising the writing of the original iteration of this work, and providing valuable comments and critique on this article. Thanks are also due to Professor Penelope Allison for the invitation to present at the second 'Big Data on the Roman Table' workshop and subsequently to publish this study.
