Editorial Foreword
Welcome to the sixth edition of the UNRV Roman History newsletter. It has been just over 3 months since our last newsletter and many things have happened since then. The continuous growth of our site made it necessary to relocate to a new web host. As such we are in the process of upgrading the current server to meet the ever increasing demand of bandwidth and server power. Now with over 1,300 forum members and an average of about 3,000 posts a month, UNRV.com definitely rates among the fastest growing sites regarding ancient history and classic studies.

Because of the incredible response to our original 'Roman Empire Wallmap', a new and improved map is almost done and should be available for purchase within the next couple of weeks. We'll save the details until everything had been finalized and the poster gone to print, but suffice it to say that this map (essentially having been researched and developed for the 2 years since the release of our original map) is a vast improvement to our first product.

As a Christmas present to our valued members to show appreciation to our community and to inspire additional contributions, we gave away several books on a variety of subjects regarding Roman history to selected forum members. Additionally, we are also delighted to announce that another "Expert" has joined our forum and will take part in a Q&A.

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 240 pages. Nerva and Trajan are now completed in the series of the Five Good Emperors. Thanks to reader contributions, we've also added several excellent articles: Eleven brief bios of various ancient writers and their works - The Cult of Isis - Brief History Of Egypt - Cults Of The Imperial Legions - Spanish Wars - Roman Domestic Cult - The Religion of Rome and Religion Of Egypt

3. Ask the Expert
=======================
We are happy to announce that Dr. Peter Heather has agreed to answer questions from our forum members. At the thread " Ask the Expert - Peter Heather" every forum member can ask a question. After a week or two (depending how many questions we have) Professor Heather will answer some of those which are best suited to his area of expertise. (Dr Heather (DPhil (Oxon), Lecturer (CUF) in Modern History) at Worcester College, Oxford University, has published widely on the later Roman Empire (East and West), its cross-border relations, and the political, social and cultural history of its successor states in the period c250-600 AD. His current interests include the role of propoganda in the late Roman elite, and the related phenomena of ethnicity and migration among the groups who dismantled the western half of the Roman Empire.
