    The ongoing "History of Rome" series has a new chapter. The Conquest of Italy: The Consolidation of Latium, is the first of several chapters in this latest update to the series. It details the early Roman rise to power within its home region, prior to expansion throughout Italy. Additional updates will follow shortly including Veii and the Etruscans, The Gallic Sack of Rome, The Samnite Wars and more.

    In an incredible development on the archeology scene, it appears that a new, even if short-lived, Roman Emperor has been discovered. Emperor Domitianus (IMP C DOMITIANUS P F AUG), not to be confused with the Domitian of the 1st century AD, was likely a British usurper who ruled in 271 AD. The dying days of the break away Gallic Empire may have more secrets in store, but the excavation of this coin (re-affirming another found a century ago), is ground breaking in more ways than one.

    The "History of Rome" series has been updated with several new articles relating to the
    Birth of the Roman Republic.
     
    For the convenience of our visitors, the text is broken down by related segments and posted separately. The "Struggle of the Orders" is a reflection on the conflict between patrician and plebeian classes in early Rome. The "Republican Constitution" breaks down the government into 3 categories roughly corresponding to more modern systems. Of the 3 categories, the "Executive Branch" describes the Curule Magistrates or executive offices, and the "Legislative Branch" describes the basics of the 3 people's assemblies. Finally, the "Roman Senate" gives an outline of responsibilities and duties of one of history's most famous governing bodies.

    The biography section is being expanded with an addition on the Roman historian Publius Cornelius Tacitus. The writer who gave us several important works such as the Annals and Agricola is one of the few sources in ancient history to give us any information on the Germanic people. Revered, disputed and debated for 2 centuries, Tacitus is among the greatest of the ancient historians.

    The Roman culture section continues to grow with today's addition on the Roman Gladiator.
     
    Gladiators were the equivelant of all modern sports stars for the ancient Romans, with a bit more violent stakes. Find out who they were and how it started in this article.

    Current content in the works:
     
    I. A Roman legion roster highlighting the names, foundations, and significant campaigns of all the legions from the imperatorial period through the end of the empire.
     
    II. A roman coin and economy section.
     
    III. A list of all the Roman Consuls from 753 BC through the end of the western empire.
     
    IV. A brief history of Rome and her empire, including an in depth timeline.
     
    Of course there are many projects that are in the queue, but these are a sample of what you should see soon. Brief descriptions of all the emperors, completing the province histories, filling in the culture section with information on religion, the gods, roman numerals, the calendar etc.
     
    We may even expand our coverage to include Rome's less civilized neighbors with a Celtic Timeline under consideration by our technical expert Moonlapse, as well as other civilizations. All in due time
