9780806130149: The Making of the Roman Army: From Republic to Empire

The Making of the Roman Army explores how a small citizen militia guarding a village on the banks of the Tiber evolved into the professional Roman army. Lawrence Keppie pays particular attention to the transitional period between Republic and Empire - the time of Julius Caesar, Mark Antony, and Augustus. Keppie overcomes the traditional dichotomy between a historical view of the Republic and an archaeological approach to the Empire by making the most of the often overlooked archaeological evidence from the earlier years.

About the Author:

Lawrence Keppie is Professor Emeritus of Roman History and Archaeology and retired Senior Curator of Archaeology, History, and Ethnography at the Hunterian Museum, University of Glasgow. He is the author of Understanding Roman Inscriptions and The Legacy of Rome: Scotland’s Roman Remains.

Review:

'This is an excellent book ... a book that will instruct and delight the general reader and scholar alike.' - History

'The book is aimed at both historians and archaeologists, whether professional or amateur, all of whom will find much to enjoy and applaud, as well as considerable instruction.' - Times Literary Supplement

'Keppie's style is highly readable and often amusing and provides a clear account of the Army's evolution, uncluttered by excessive use of footnotes.' - Archaeological Journal

'A thoughtful and well-written volume.' - Antiquaries Journal

'The book provides essential background for any course dealing with Augustus, and Routledge are to be congratulated on making it available again at a price which school libraries can afford.' - JACT Review
