Summary

Summary

This lively and original guidebook is the first to show students new to the subject exactly what Roman social history involves, and how they can study it for themselves.
After presenting a short history of the development and current position of the discipline, the author discusses the kinds of evidence that can be used, and the full range of resources available. Two case-studies provide practical examples of how to approach sources, and what we can learn from them.
Clear, concise and accessible, with all text extracts translated into English, this is the ideal introduction to an increasingly popular subject.
