The great events of Roman history are represented here, from the Battle of Mylae to the triumph of the Barbarians, and Rome’s social, cultural, and religious life in all its sophistication, luxury, and depravity. Using memoirs, letters, and official reports, inscriptions, and household accounts, this new collection draws from life sketches of the Roman way of war, empire building, civilization, and the pax romana.

These and many other accounts, whether of great events in war and politics, or everyday matters such as the raising of children, bring the Roman world to life in all its color and variety.
