Christopher Phillips argues instead that the international dimension was never secondary bu...

Paperback
by Bedoyere, Guy de la

While the main events from 55 BC to AD 410 are little disputed, and the archaeological remains of villas, forts, walls, and cities explain a great deal, we lack a clear sense of individual lives. This boo...
