Roman Europe

1000 BC - AD 400

Edited by Edward Bispham

Short Oxford History of Europe

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. Featuring work by eight expert contributors, 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.
