Roman Emperors A Gateway to Ancient Rome William Smith's Dictionary of Greek and Roman Antiquities, an encyclopedic work containing a lot of good basic information (and references to primary sources), was published in 1875: it is thus an educational resource in the public domain. I've been putting a large selection of articles from it online, often as background material for other webpages. It is illustrated with its own woodcuts and some additional photographs of my own. Chariots and carriages, the theatre, circus and amphitheatre, roads, bridges, aqueducts, obelisks, timepieces, organs, hair curlers; marriage & children, slaves, dance, salt mines, and an awful lot more; among which special sections on law, religion, warfare, daily life, and clothing.

The article first presents a short overview of Roman training. Roman performance against different types of enemies is then analyzed. Finally a summation of what made the Roman tactics and strategy militarily effective through their long history is given below, as is a discussion of how and why this effectiveness eventually disappeared. The focus below is primarily on Roman tactics - the "how" of their approach to battle, and how it stacked up against a variety of opponents over time. It does not attempt detailed coverage of things like army structure or equipment. Evolution[edit] Roman military tactics and strategy evolved from that typical of a small tribal host seeking local hegemony, to massive operations encompassing a world empire. Equipment and training[edit] Training[edit] Battle[edit]

Empereur romain germanique Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. L’empereur romain germanique est le vocable sous lequel est désigné le souverain du Saint-Empire. Le titre officiel d’empereur des Romains étant contesté par les empereurs byzantins, l’historiographie a consacré l’usage du terme d’empereur romain germanique. Il était élu par le collège des princes-électeurs. Selon les usages de la chancellerie impériale, notamment sous Charles Quint, la titulature complète en était « par la divine clémence, empereur des Romains toujours auguste », « divina favente clementia Romanorum imperator semper augustus » en latin. Entre le moment de son élection et son couronnement, ce prince était titré roi des Romains. VRoma: A Virtual Community for Teaching and LearningClassics

OLYMPOS, la Grèce antique Roman Army Part I The Roman Army in the Late Republic and Early Empire NB: Over the centuries, the Roman army changed and developed, and conditions often differed somewhat depending on the provinces where the troops were fighting and stationed. The following information is intended to give a generic picture of military organization, armor, weaponry, etc. during the late Republic and early Empire. LEGIONS (legio): The legion was the basic unit of Rome's standing army of career soldiers, the legionaries, who were all Roman citizens and fought primarily as foot-soldiers (infantry). Though the exact numbers of men in a legion varied, the basic pattern of organization remained the same. A Modern “Legion”: British Schoolchildren Visit a Roman Fort CAMPS (castra): As Josephus notes, the Roman camps were always constructed according to a set pattern, laid out like a city bisected by two streets leading to four gates.
