Editorial Foreword
Welcome to the fourteenth edition of the UNRV Roman History newsletter. It’s the second edition in the New Year and is once again full of interesting news, updates, author interviews and a book giveaway promotion. After the forum and home page graphic update, we’ve added a site map using the same theme. The new look and feel, along with added functionality was smoothly integrated and will eventually be incorporated throughout the site.

1. A few interesting threads from the Forum
===============================
Greatest Roman Figure??, Is it Caesar?
Who was Brutus's father?
Rome against the Roman Empire
When does the Byzantine Empire begin?
Ancient & Modern, Comparisons of military organisation
Roman Grass, How did they manage their ground cover?
Where do you see Latin today?
The importance of ancestry?

2. New pages on UNRV.com
========================
Over the last couple of months we have added two more articles to the era of the “Decline of the Empire”, Severus’ Administration and the Legions and Caracalla.

Thanks to reader contributions we've also added a short biography of the late western emperor Anthemius and a review of HBO`s Rome Season 2 DVD.

Additionally, we encourage contributions from our community and general readership as part of the learning experience.

3. Interviews with Authors
=======================
Often when finishing a book, a reader may want to ask questions of the author for further insight. We had the opportunity and the pleasure to do just that in an interview with Dr. Philip Matyszak on “Sons of Caesar”, John R. Clarke on “Looking at Laughter” and Caroline Lawrence on “The Sirens of Surrentum
