Discourses of War in the Roman World from Julius Caesar to Heraclius

Saturday 8th March 2008, 09:30-19:00, H5.45 - Graduate Space, Humanities Building, Main Campus

One Day Interdisciplinary Conference

Although warfare in ancient Rome has long been a topic of interest, the role of culture in the changing practices of war has not. The aim of this conference is to consider some of the issues raised by Ted Lendon’s Soldiers and Ghosts (2004), and in particular his discussion of the relationship between the discourses of war and reality in the Roman world, with special emphasis on the period from Caesar to Heraclius.

Keynote Speaker

  • Ted Lendon (University of Virginia)
‘What Roman Soldiers Thought About Each Other: Patterns of Solidarity in Roman Military Inscriptions’
