    De Gruyter 2009; US$ 98.00

    Die Stadt Rom und ihre Monumente waren in der Spätantike für Kaiser, Senatorenstand und christliche Autoren Bezugspunkt der Selbstdarstellung und Fixpunkt des eigenen Geschichtsbildes.

    Vagabond Voices 2013; US$ 5.82

    On 16 October 1943, the German army tore 1,056 Jewish Italians from their homes, from their lives and loves, from their routine and familiar objects, and from their home city of Rome.

  • Siena, San Gimignano, Montepulciano & Beyondby Emma Jones

    Hunter Publishing 2012; US$ 7.99

    Most visitors arriving from the hustle and crowds of busy Florence cannot help but fall under the charm of Siena's gracefully winding (and pedestrianized) medieval streets.

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 150.00

    The years from the battle of Actium to the death of Nero stand at the very heart of Roman history. Yet the sources of this key period, particularly the inscriptions, papyri and coins, are not readily accessible.

  • In portum navigareby Christina Wawrzinek

    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 140.00

    Häfen sind Orte von besonderer Faszination. Sie sind Tore zur Welt, aber auch Umschlagplätze für große Mengen von Waren. Ihre verbindende Funktion zwischen Wasser und Land spielte bereits in der Antike eine große Rolle, auch an den Flüssen im Römischen Reich. Umso erstaunlicher ist das lange Zeit eher geringe Forschungsinteresse an römischen Binnenhäfen.... more...
