Empire State: How the Roman Military Built an Empire
Event on 2017-12-07 18:00:00
The armed forces of Rome are regarded as some of the finest military formations ever to engage in warfare. Less well known however is their use by the State for non-military activities. In his new book 'Empire State: How the Roman Military Built an Empire', Simon Elliott considers this for the first time, showing how the military were utilised in a wide variety of civilian roles. These included helping administer and police the Empire, being the main resource used in construction and engineering projects, running industry such as metalla mining and quarrying, and participating in agricultural activity.
