Editorial Foreword
Welcome to the thirteenth edition of the UNRV Roman History newsletter. It is the first edition in the New Year and is packed with interesting news, updates, an author interview and a book giveaway. The biggest change on unrv.com since the last newsletter is the optical enhancement of the front page. It has a fresh new look and feel (with what we feel is a more ‘Romanesque’ attitude) along with added functionality smoothly integrated with the look of the forum.

1. A few interesting threads from the Forum
===============================
Most Influential Gentes of the Republic
Imperial Law in Roman Judaea
Nobiles in the Caesarian Civil War
Meteor Shower, What would the Romans have thought?
What's the last book you read?
Pontius Pilate, Not all roads lead to Rome...?
Julius Caesar an Emperor?
Diminishment of Roman Civilization?

2. New pages on UNRV.com
========================
Over the last couple of months we have added several articles to the era of the “Decline of the Empire
Legal and Institutional Chronology of the Roman Republic details the major known laws of the Roman Republic and includes a simple Roman Law Glossary

Thanks to reader contributions we've also added an overview of the Celtic goddess Morrigan. Names for Roman Dogs, Political Violence in the Roman Republic and an essay on "Why Augustus was so successful in creating the Roman Empire". Additionally, we encourage contributions from our community and general readership as part of the learning experience.

3. Interview with Andrew Dalby
=======================
Often when one reviews a book, you want to ask the author for further insights. With Mr. Dalby a senior member at UNRV, we had the rare privilege of exercising that desire after reviewing his book Bacchus: A Biography. The following is an interview with the author replicated with his permission.

4. New Year Giveaway

Cosmetics & Perfumes in the Roman World
