  1. What a great reference work! My initial problem is the placement of the subtitles " Emperors of the West and Emperors of the East." You may want to better clarify the subdivisions. I won't make the demarcation until AFTER Theodosius I. I also have other minor questions such as placement of timelines as "old republican families no longer relevant" or "Traditional Roman legislative assemblies dissolved." I have a few other small questions. I appreciate your time and effort, however. Well done! Maybe the higher ups at UNRV can work with you into turining this into a profitable venture. guy also known as gaius Hi there Gaius/Guy: Thanks for that. Yeah, those two big west/east titles at the top worry me too. I'll have to see if I can re-arrange them. As to the general text comments (even more opinionated in my Republic chart), I suppose my stance was influenced by the much-missed Colin McEvedy's wonderful Penguin atlases, and by Mike Duncan's THoR podcasts: facts made fun by quirks, I'd call them. Every text comment has a source somewhere behind it, although I've forgotten most of them. The comment "old republican families no longer relevant" is at the quirks end of the spectrum: it's my gloss on H. Flowers' Republics of Rome, p 179; while "Traditional Roman legislative assemblies dissolved" is at the facts end: AFAIK Tiberius and the Senate did in fact do that. Thanks for your post. The more inaccuracies you and other readers of this forum can find in the chart, the better it will get. Garry
  2. Ta muchly Centurion-Macro. It was a lot of fun to make it, and it helped me sort out the Valerians from the Valens from the Valentinians. I'll keep refining it through time. I hope other readers of this forum find it a useful aide memoire.
  3. Thanks for that caesar novus. I agree completely. The imperial chart is simple and striking, and the Republican one a vast soup. The various greys in the Wars boxes are keyed to the timeline at left, but they are rather dull and dreary. I'll keep working on it. Garry
  4. Hi All: For the sheer pleasure of it, I made an A1 (24x36") timechart of the Roman republic, showing all Rome's major wars, the major players, and as many events as i could fit in. Downloadable for free from http://charts.archsoc.com. Commments and criticisms welcomed, especially about the information it conveys, the general layout, and whether the chart is clear or not. I don't claim to be a graphic designer, so detailed critiques of my font choice, colour selections, and so on will go over my head. (Not sure which forum to post this to, and I avoided the Trajan's Market, since I'm not actually selling anything. Apologies if I have the wrong forum. I've also cross-posted this to the Imperial forum, for my 1st chart about the Roman emperors, available from the same address)
