    Closing out a series of Samnite Wars the Third Samnite War put an end to threats from Rome's neighbors in Central Italy and left only the Greek city-state of Tarentum as opposition on the Italian Peninsula. Final victory over the Samnites consolidated Rome's strength in Italy, but also exposed her to more dangerous threats abroad, such as the Greeks and Carthaginians.

    Nearing the conclusion of the Conquest of Italy chapter, we've added the Great or Second Samnite War. Initially a bitter struggle that saw several Roman defeats, victory established Rome's permanent establishment in central Italy and opened the door to the south.

    With the end of the first Samnite War, Rome faced another challenge from her Latin neighbors. Open revolt turned into a war that would clearly make Rome the master of Central Italy.
    The Latin Revolt has been added as a new chapter of the Conquest of Italy section of the Roman History series.

    Focusing some attention on the UNRV.com Roman Culture section, we've added a short treatment on the history of the Latin Language. From its humble beginnings as a local dialect, this Indo-European tongue grew into the dominant language of western Europe for a millenia. Its roots still survive today in various forms in many of the world's common languages.
