Editorial Foreword
Welcome to the seventh edition of the UNRV Roman History newsletter. Itís been just over 2 months since our last newsletter and much has happened since then. Now with over 1.500 forum members and an average of about 6.500 visitors a day, UNRV.com continues to grow at an incredible pace. The new improved wallmap was finished a couple of months ago, and the response so far has been overwhelming. You are able to purchase a copy directly from our site. We are also delighted to announce that another "Expert" has joined our forum and will take part in a Q&A.

3. Ask the Expert
=======================
We are happy to announce that Dr. Arthur Keaveney has agreed to answer questions from our forum members.

(Please continue any further discussion by creating a new topic.) Questions not pertaining to the appropriate area of the professorís expertise are also discouraged so that the time and energy of our guest are focused and the resulting answers offer a greater contribution to the community as a whole. (Please refer to the following paragraph for the Professorís targeted area of expertise.) After a week or two (depending how many questions we have) Dr. Keaveney will answer those which he thinks are the most interesting or applicable...

Dr Arthur Keaveney is senior lecturer in Classical Studies at the Univeristy of Kent. He is teaching and researching in ancient history, Greek & Roman, particularly the Roman republic and Achaemenid Persia. Publications include Rome and the Unification of Italy, Lucullus; A Life and Sulla; The Last Republican...
