Known for its extraordinarily rich cultural legacy, the Roman Empire is one of the most studied periods of all history.
Encyclopedia of the Roman Empire, Revised Edition provides comprehensive and interdisciplinary coverage of the people, places, events, and ideas of this remarkable period.
Spanning almost 500 years of turmoil and triumph, each of the nearly 2,000 entries has been reviewed and updated to fully reflect the most recent advances in archaeology, historical and literary criticism, and social analysis.
New entries have been added on daily life, engineering, science, law, and the role of women in Roman society, among others.
Complementing these historical essays are new photographs, maps, tables, sidebars and new reading lists for major entries.
