5.0 étoiles sur 5 Rome in the Low Countries 18 août 2013
Par Margaret A. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Readers of Roman history know of Caesar's Gallic Wars and Varus' defeat at the Teutoburg Forest. However, the battles, treaties, and trade agreements between the Romans and the peoples of the Lower Rhine valley (modern Belgium, Germany, and Holland) were equally important aspects of Roman history. Jona Lendering and Arjen Bosman's work provides an outstanding English-language history of the Lower Rhine frontier, from Julius Caesar through Charlemagne, for the general reader. The authors blend history and archaeology to present an up-to-date, very well illustrated volume. This book contains long quotations from classical sources, interspersed with commentary and archaeological information that puts the Roman material into the context it has so long needed. For readers interested in Roman history, western European history, or northern European Late Antiquity (formerly known as the Dark Ages), this book is a valuable addition to the library. Translator Marie Smit-Ryan deserves praise for her excellent work.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The perfect overview about Roman presence in the lower Rhine 15 octobre 2013
Par Anibal Madeira - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Roman military history owes a lot to Jona Lendering and Karwansaray publisher - Jasper Oorthuys. Just think about it and try to erase livius.org or Roman Army Talk, or Ancient Warfare Magazine!!! They (and obviously other contributors, academics and scholars) have provided not only platforms for communication but also tons of reliable information.

Unfortunately, most of Lendering's works are written in Dutch. Although a charming language it's nigh impossible for a Mediterranean to be proficient in (just joking). But now, this wonderful work by Lendering in cooperation with the very competent archeologist Arjen Bosman is finally translated and available in English.

This investigation takes the reader through ancient writings, clarifying them with archeological finds, fighting some assumptions and explaining to the common reader the history of Rome's frontier on the lower Rhine.

It is essentially a military history, but with excellent insight relating to individuals, economic and financial flows, urbanization, crisis and its management in this frontier, Romanization, language dominance, etc.

With magnificent color art by Johnny Shumate and Graham Sumner, perfect maps, photographs of statuary and artifacts and copy-edited by Duncan B. Campbell you simply can't afford to miss this first hardcover book by Karwansaray Publishing.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Superb work on a relatively little known area of Roman history 12 avril 2017
Par Bill - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
What to say that hasn't been said by other reviewer? Let me affirm this a very high quality book, from its construction, paper quality, layout, excellent illustrations. From front to back it goes in chronological order of events.

The authors are careful to avoid dumping in legends or unsubstantiated materials. This is good to avoid cluttering the mind and book with junk, but they take it too far at times. This leaves it short on details of events such as Julius Caesar's wholesale slaughter of the two tribes near current Kestern, Netherlands. This in spite of all the skeletal finds along with military hardware. The authors apparently want overwhelming truckloads of evidence instead of good evidence that has a contemporary historical documentation that 150,000 people were slaughtered in a small area in two days time. It would like ignoring the German's wiping out the 3 Roman Legions under Varus's command because large mounds of artifacts haven't been found.

I would like to have seen more about the Batavian people since they played a significant role being "Friends of Rome". From their pivotal action in Claudius's invasion of Britain to staffing the Praetorian Guard to providing many thousands of fighting men to Roman Legions.

Criticisms aside the book has much to offer in new or little known facts about the people in the Rhine delta. In spite of my two personal issues with "missing" content I strongly recommend the book. There is very very little written about the people of the Rhine delta during the Roman period. This book goes a long way to shed light on the history of that area and its done in a well-written, understandable form.No scholarly mumble-jumble double-talk...thank you!

I was hoping for more on Batavians since my family originates in the delta from Arnhem to Utrecht. My personal interests aside it's a superb work that I highly recommend. The authors did a lot of work to investigate and assemble archival/archeological evidence to illuminate an area of Roman history that's largely ignored by other scholars. Definitely a 5 star book.
