Between the reigns of Augustus and Septimius Severus, the Eastern provinces of the Roman Empire frequently saw brutal fighting, most notably during the conquest of Dacia by Trajan, the suppression of the Great Revolt in Judea and intermittent clashes with Rome's great rival Parthia. In these wars, Roman soldiers had to fight in a range of different climates and terrains, from the deserts of the Middle East to the islands of the eastern Mediterranean. Using full-colour artwork, this book examines the variation of equipment and uniforms both between different military units, and in armies stationed in different regions of the Empire. Using evidence drawn from recent archaeological finds, it paints a vivid portrait of Roman army units in the Eastern provinces in the first two centuries of the Imperial period.

At its height the Roman Empire stretched across Europe, North Africa and the Middle East, maintained by an army of modest size but great diversity. In popular culture these soldiers are often portrayed in a generic fashion, but continuing research indicates significant variations in Roman armour and equipment not only between different legions and the provincially-raised auxiliary cohorts that made up half of the army, but also between different regions within the empire. With reference to the latest archaeological and documentary evidence Dr D'Amato investigates how Roman Army units in the Western provinces were equipped, exploring the local influences and traditions that caused the variations in attire.

The studies in this volume concern the society and economy of the Roman Empire up to the 4th century AD. Having begun with the populace of Rome itself and the way in which the poor were controlled by the rich, the author's perspective has widened to include the cities and lands of Italy and then the provinces of the Empire. The subjects studied are the organizations of labour, the relationship between town and country and the importance of trade.

This volume offers a new insight into the development of a great historian, as well as giving an exciting and immensely readable new approach to late Republican and early Imperial Roman history. Drafted in 1934-35, but laid aside in favour of The Roman Revolution (1939), The Provincial at Rome was to have been Ronald Syme's first book. It is a brilliantly written study of the enlargement of the Roman élite in the early empire, an analysis, in thirteen chapters, of the Emperor Claudius' enrolment of 'Gallic chieftains' into the Senate in AD 48. The edition also includes five unpublished papers dealing with Rome's conquest of the Balkans, a region Syme knew intimately.

The papers in this volume represent the fruits of over 40 years research on the military and administrative history of the Roman Empire and Roman Britain. In all cases, the aim of the author has been to provide solutions to problems, rather than to raise issues for discussion. The first paper here is on legions, the last on latrines. Between them come studies on the army of the imperial period and Roman frontiers; the operations of that army in Britain; and civilian life in Britain under Roman rule, not least the development of the cities which were the main vehicle of Roman civilisation and government.
