A Chronology of the Roman Empire provides a complete and comprehensive chronological reference for the entire Roman state and its neighbours.

Following opening discussion of the ancient sources and the myth of the foundation of Rome, the events of each year to the fall of the last emperor in 476 are covered in detail, including listings of the elected consuls and major battles as well as political and social events. All material is derived from original sources.

The introduction considers key historiographical questions and concerns of the period. Professor John Drinkwater considers the importance of questioning sources, most notably Livy, and what can be said with any authority. He places the period in its historical, political and cultural context and challenges some of the scholarship to date.

This is a complete resource and indispensable tool for anyone studying the Roman Empire.

Review:

By its size, this volume is obviously intended for libraries where it would be a valuable addition to any collection of works on the Empire... It is certainly well researched and well written... If one were only allowed one reference text on Rome's history, then it would have to be this one.--Contemporary Review
