    Romes Origin...

    I like then following theory: up to 12 BC Italy was populated by swarthy people of Mediterranean type. To 10 BC begins promoting of Aryan tribe toward South. They occuped more part of North and Central of Italy and mixed with their proceeders. There is a opinion that the Trojans were Arian's tribe, which belong the Celts, the Greeces and etc. it's likehood that Indo-European and Aryan are same tribe.

    What Made Rome?

    First of that the Romans were learned how to defend from outside enemy. Second they were intracting their enemy as allies in their fight with other enemy. So flexible policy were the basis of Roman's growth through of conquested territories. This strategy was leading to greatest wins (Carthage, etc) and Rome had achived the status of the superpower state.

    Yes, I think that the chariot had not a success to fight a Roman legion. I doubt generally that Britons used them to combat, likehood, they were just a sort of transport.
  10. I saw many Roman things: spoons and forks different shapes and dimensions. Romans used to apply covers.

    North Africa was more significant conquest. Gallia was gradually getting under influence of Rome. If Rome left Gallia in peace, it came to Rome itself later. The German tribes did not give a quiet life to gauls too. That circumstance could lead to search of powerful allies. It's my opinion only.

    Livy As A Historian

    Are you sure, that modern historians do not deform the facts? Probably, our descendants will receive rather approximate representation about our time. Livy tried to be unbiassed. Certainly, he could not be absolutely exact, and it is not his fault. I think his books are noteworthy and very informative.

    I like extremal sports: a mountain bicycle and gliding. I have younger brother (10 years), he is the talented racer. I accompany him at competitions and trainings. His career - is my hobby too. I carry the responsibility for him and I want, that he has achieved many things in his life. Classical music. Painting. And.. the ROMAN HISTORY!!!

    Head To Head

    I give preference Livy. His books about Punic wars are more informative in my opinion. But it is useful to read all authors. Frequently they supplement each other.
