Editorial Foreword
Welcome to the fifth edition of the UNRV Roman History newsletter. It's been just over 3 months since our last newsletter and many exciting things have happened. The upgrade of the discussion forum, picture gallery and blog facility for our community members has been completed and all was a smooth transition. The Roman Book GiveAway is so far a full success and already 4 members have received a book. The hottest forum topic in the last couple of weeks was obviously the discussion around HBO`s Rome series. We are also very proud that Oxford Professor Dr. Bryan Ward-Perkins (author of the recently published, 'The Fall of Rome and the End of Civilizaton') has agreed to answer select questions from members of the community.

1. Interesting threads from the Forum
===============================

2. New pages on UNRV.com
========================
The last couple of months we continued our effort to expand the Roman history section, which already has over 220 pages. The emperors Titus and Domitian are completed and the series will continue shortly with 'The Five Good Emperors'. We created a useful Episode Guide for the HBO series "Rome" and additionally, thanks to a reader contribution, we've also added an article about the goddess Venus.

3. Ask the Expert
=======================
We are happy to announce that Professor Dr. Bryan Ward-Perkins has agreed to answer questions from our forum members.
At the thread "Ask the Expert - Bryan Ward-Perkins" every forum member can ask a question. After a week or two (depending how many questions we have) Professor Dr. Bryan Ward-Perkins will answer some of those which are best suited to his area of expertise. (Professor Dr. Bryan Ward-Perkins is a lecturer in Modern History at the University of Oxford, and Fellow and Tutor in History at Trinity College. His research concentrates on the period of transition from the Roman world to that of the Middle Ages, above all in the Mediterranean region. He has published widely on the subject, most recently 'The Fall of Rome and the End of Civilization' available at Amazon, and is a co-editor of The Cambridge Ancient History.)
