Chris Scarre

 (Edited by)

The colossal statuary of ancient Egypt, Roman aqueducts, or hill- forts such as Maiden Castle - such vast monuments from antiquity fill modern visitorThe colossal statuary of ancient Egypt, Roman aqueducts, or hill- forts such as Maiden Castle - such vast monuments from antiquity fill modern visitors with awe: how were they constructed using only simple tools and manpower? This volume focuses on the engineering achievements of the ancients, going beyond the original seven wonders to span the whole world and around 6,500 years, from the menhirs of Brittany, to the Great Temple of the Aztecs at Tenochtitlan, built between 1325-1500 CE. ...more

A Study of Cassius Dio



Fergus Millar


Oxford University Press 1999
Hardback 
 

Dio's 'Roman History' is one of the most important sources for the study of classical Rome, but comparatively little attention has been devoted to CasDio's 'Roman History' is one of the most important sources for the study of classical Rome, but comparatively little attention has been devoted to Cassius Dio Cocceianus himself, a Greek from Bithynia who was consul in AD 229. This book discusses Dio's background and career and analyzes both the composition of the 'History' and the nature of the political and historical views expressed in it. Millar looks in detail at Dio's eyewitness account of his own period and also shows how the 'History' reflects the fusion of two traditions - Greek civilization and Roman government.

Colony and Mother City in Ancient Greece



AJ Graham


Manchester University Press 1999
Hardback 
 

The relations between Greek colonies and their mother cities have been the subject of scholarly investigation since Valesius in 1634, not only becauseThe relations between Greek colonies and their mother cities have been the subject of scholarly investigation since Valesius in 1634, not only because of the intrinsic interest of colonizing activity, but because of the special nature of Greek colonies. In this investigation of colonial relations from the 8th to 4th centuries BC, Dr Graham first describes Greek ideas and practices regarding the actual founding of colonies before turning to a discussion of individual cities including Thasos, Miletus, Corinth, Argos and Athens.

Hardback Illustrated

It traces the stages of Roman history from 'feudal capitalism', through the collapse of city-capitalism to the acute economic crisis of the 3rd century which brought about a rapid decline of business activity and the resuscitation of primitive forms of economy. For Rostovtzeff, Roman civilization and culture was finally destroyed by the lower classes in their 'onslaught on the city bourgeoisie.' (1926) ...more
