Summary
Considering the viewpoints of both the conquerors and the conquered, this captivating volume traces the rise of Rome and the extension of Roman power across Europe from 1000 BC to AD 400. It reconstructs as much as possible the indigenous experience of contact with Rome, showing how Roman domination affected the already complex world of Iron Age Europe before leaving a new "barbarian" world in its wake. Includes contributions from eight experts who use both literary and archaeological evidence to analyze the transformation of Europe and the origins of the Middle Ages. Featuring chapters on Iron Age Europe, Roman society, warfare and the army, economy and trade, religions, and the cultural implications of Roman conquest, the book also contains narrative chapters on war and politics
