Professional Summary

At present I am engaged on a source book on Roman warfare to serve as a companion to a Greek one published in 1996. It will contain introductory general essays, essays on specific topics as well as translations of relevant passages. The period covered will be from the regal period to the end of the fourth century. At present I am working on the second chapter which deals with the origins and development of thew manipular army. Command structure, logistics, social factors, equipment and descriptions of various types of battles. The sources used are of all types including literary sources, archaeological material, coins and inscriptions.
