Turia: A Roman Woman’s Civil War by Josiah Osgood

Turia: A Roman Woman’s Civil War by Josiah Osgood
Requirements: .PDF reader, 24.1MB
Overview: The civil wars that brought down the Roman Republic were fought on more than battlefields. Armed gangs infested the Italian countryside, in the city of Rome mansions were besieged, and bounty-hunters searched the streets for "public enemies."
Among the astonishing stories to survive from these years is that of a young woman whose parents were killed, on the eve of her wedding, in the violence engulfing Italy. While her future husband fought overseas, she staved off a run on her father’s estate. Despite an acute currency shortage, she raised money to help her fiancé in exile. And when several years later, her husband, back in Rome, was declared an outlaw, she successfully hid him, worked for his pardon, and joined other Roman women in staging a public protest.

Roman Auxiliary Forts 27 BC-AD 378 by Duncan B Campbell

Roman Auxiliary Forts 27 BC-AD 378 by Duncan B Campbell
Requirements: .PDF reader, 28.8 Mb
Overview: With the vast expansion of the Roman Empire came a need for more and more fortifications to defend it. The borders of the Empire stretched through wildly different terrains which demanded a huge variety of different fortifications, depending on the local conditions and the threats faced by the different areas. The adoption of local troops (auxiliaries) and local building techniques at key strategic points on the outskirts of the empire led to an intriguing mix of strong Roman structure with unique culturally diverse elements. Describing the development of these hugely varied defensive systems, Duncan Campbell delves into the operation and social history behind the fortifications. With detailed color artwork and maps, he traces their history through the Batavian Revolt of the 1st century AD, which saw auxiliary units scattered far from their native regions, until the decline of the late-3rd and 4th centuries placed their fortifications in an increasingly pressurized and eventually untenable position.

This book describes the development, design and construction of these fortresses throughout the length and breadth of the Empire.
