    I liked this book a lot. It is a manageable look at the beginnings of Rome with more than a nod to the archaeological sources needed to understand the narrative. Most of the work being produced now looks at the decline of the Empire or at specific personalities of the Empire. I think L...

    This is a fine account of Rome from its earliest days until it had established itself as the dominant power on the Italian peninsula. It's a difficult task and it's largely guesswork, but Lomas does what she can with existing archeological sources as well as written ones. Her guesswork...

    It was impressively academic--open and honest about what we currently still don't know, while managing to tell a compelling story. I especially appreciated the focus on early Rome. Decline and fall may be an exciting story, but I find more inspiration in how, more than 2000 years a...

    Rome probably can't be described without resorting to its myths (like Romulus and Remus) and Lomas spends many pages fitting these stories into her book of the rise of Rome. She starts Chapter 3 with this quote by Wiseman who was a professor of JK Rowlings: "Let us define a myth as a s...

    'How did Rome come to rule the Ancient Mediterranean' is a question which picks at the mind of many enthusiasts of the Classical World. Kathryn Lomas successfully tackles this question in her book demonstrating that Romes "manifest destiny" to to rule the civilized world was neither an...
