No, but it is on my list. I agree it is interesting; seems to be a culture and daily life book for the later empire, which is a rare thing.

Both authors have remarkable lists of published works:

My error: Cameron in not the coauthor, merely wrote the introduction.

Can anyone point me to a timeline online of the Roman Empire, one that can tell me about

the events of 428 AD?

Traina's book extract and contents seem to be a nice list for me.

Traina explicitly selected a fifth century year with not too may ground-breaking events.

Arguably the most relevant events for 428 AD itself would be:

-The final demise and annexation of the centuries-long Armenian client kingdom by the Persians.

- The beginning of Genseric's reign.

- Nestorius becoming the Patriarch of Constantinople.

I missed out on getting this at Christmas, so it might go on my birthday list. I've been meaning to get a book on daily life and culture in the late period for nearly two years now, but I haven't seen much about the subject.
