Editorial Reviews


The greatest success of this volume is its attempt to force the reader to think of writing as a concept in toto ... Whilst each individual chapter has a clear merit for the study of that particular place or type of writing, it is the work as a whole that should be viewed as an important contribution to furthering the scholarly discourse on the significance and prevalence of writing in Rome and the West. (Virginia L. Campbell, University of Oxford Bryn Mawr Classical Review)

... Well-written and informative and the whole collection is bound together by a stimulating introduction by Laurence and Sears and a fascinating afterword by Keegan ... There are surprising and provocative connections to be made throughout the volume ... (

Ray Laurence is Professor of Ancient History at Macquarie University (Sydney - Australia). He has previously taught at the Universities of Reading, Birmingham and Kent in the England.

He has throughout his career (first book published in 1994) advocated that Roman history and archaeology are two means to the past that need to be studied together.

Much of his work features an engagement with contemporary thinking from a range of disciplines that are involve the study of urban space, ageing and the life course, and the study of everyday life in the Roman Empire.

Moving to Australia in 2017, Ray has been struck by the sheer scale of Ancient History in Australia with over 10,000 students taking Higher Schools Certificate (HSC) in the subject, and substantial numbers enrolled at University - actually far higher than in the UK.
