Overview

The theme of this course is the rise, decline and fall of the longest-lasting empire the Western world has ever known; an empire that to this day pervades political, legal, intellectual and religious discussion. We will consider the impact of sources such as Tacitus, Ammianus Marcellinus, Edward Gibbon and Mary Beard; sources which continue to influence politicians, artists, historians and readers the world over .

This is a repeat of the course from 2019/2020 disrupted by the pandemic. It is recommended that previous students start this course again.
