  1. Hello All, I have uploaded a paper to academia.edu titled "48 BC: The Battle of Pharsalus." https://independent.academia.edu/StevenJames1 Thank you for your time. Steven James
  2. Hello All, I have posted a new paper on academia.edu titled "A Selective Examination of Livy's Campaigns." https://independent.academia.edu/StevenJames1 The paper looks into how Livy has arrived at his army numbers for those nine campaigns under examination. Thank you for your time Steven James
  3. For those interested, I have uploaded a paper to academia.edu titled "225 BC: Polybius' Account of the Telamon Campaign." Basically, the paper highlights that Polybius' levy for 225 BC and his numbers for the Roman army at Telamon are flawed.

    The Roman Tribes: A New Perpective

    Could someone please explain why I cannot cut and paste from Word. I have given this program access to my clipboard but still nothing works.

    The Roman Tribes: A New Perpective

    Hello Viggen, Hold five. I never for once took you as attacking my credibility. The question about not being an academic was general in sense. I should have written it as " do people think if you are not an academic you cannot have anything to offer." It was more in a response to the replies I get from publishers. The publishing world seems to think only professional academics would have the answer, and that a book is easier to sell if I was an academic. Sorry, getting this all the time from the publishing world. As for a bad day, no, but trying to get the paste mechanism to work was annoying. In my original word version, the credibility issue was written differently, but as I was rewriting this again I was cutting corners because I was annoyed at the time I had wasted doing it on word and I was adamant I was not going to rewrite the whole thing over again. Second posting and already problems. I think I will give forums away. I don't like misunderstandings. However, do read the paper and let me know what you think. It would be greatly appreciated.

    The Roman Tribes: A New Perpective

    Hello Viggen, I wrote a long reply on Word and it will not paste no matter what I do and I have given up. I am not in the mood to rewrite the whole thing again due to some technology problem, so I won't be. I am an amateur historian. I am not an academic. Does that mean I have less credibility? The paper I posted was a watered down version of my research which is part of my book "Rome's Legions: Decoding Their Pythagorean Organization 753 BC to 410 AD. After eight years I have finished the book and it has been reviewed and examined by academics. They have not been able to refute it and they have no idea of what to do with me. As all my conclusions contravene and challenge almost every popular and established theory concerning the Romans for the last four hundred years I am not that popular with some academics. I have found that if you want academics to accept you, its is better to conform than make discoveries.
  7. Hello All, I have uploaded a paper to academia edu. titled "The Roman Tribes: A New Perspective." https://independent.academia.edu/StevenJames1 The paper shows how to convert the Servian Constitution (The Century Assembly) into the internal structure of the Roman tribe. This process shows that the Roman tribal system was adhering to the doctrines of Pythagoras.
