About this course

Do you love History? Do you enjoy to enrich your knowledge and discuss with other students? Then we have the right course for you.
After the turmoil and civil war of the late Roman republic, the first Roman emperors preside over a period of political stability, aggressive overseas expansion, growing wealth and an astonishing cultural flowering. The private lives of the emperors and those around them were a source of much gossip at the time, and have provided juicy material for modern authors, adapters and film makers, but our course will focus more on how the wider development of the Roman Empire. The period covers the Roman invasion of Britain and the early Christian period in the Eastern Mediterranean.

How will I be taught?

The tutor will use as much contemporary material as possible, combined with modern analysis and literary and archaeological evidence, to tell the story and understand the motives and lives of the people at all levels of society and throughout the then Roman Empire.
