Roman Conquest of Italy
 


Welcome

I have arranged the vast amount of information in this site into four strands, with links that allow easy cross-referencing between the pages of each strand:

Roman Expansion in Italy

This is a succession of pages arranged in chronological order, illuminating the succession of phases in which the Roman conquest of their neighbours throughout peninsular Italy, from the fall of the Etruscan city-state of Veii in 437 BC to the final victory over the Carthaginian invaders in 201 BC.

Incorporation of the Italians

In these pages, I chart how the territory that came under Roman control in each of these phases was incorporated into the state as its boundaries extended inexorably to finally encompass the entire peninsular.

Roman Italy

This is a succession of pages arranged in chronological order, dealing with the period from the final victory over the Carthaginian invaders in 201 BC until the Death of the Emperor Constantine in 337 AD.

Developments at Rome

In these pages, I chart how Rome itself was changed over time, as its hegemony expanded across the peninsular and then  as its hegemony extended around the Mediterranean.

Topics

These pages cover interesting topics as they emerge from the analysis above.
