    Irene, I think whatever the group wants is fine with me. I am going to be putting some of this on old for awhile as I just ran into a HUUUUUGGGGE homework

      Irene, I think whatever the group wants is fine
      with me. I am going to be putting some of this
      on old for awhile as I just ran into a
      HUUUUUGGGGE homework assignment for a class I am
      taking. So I will be lurking more than
      participating until I get caught up. The subject
      is military philosophy, so Rome will be on the
      back burner for awile. So maybe by the time I
      get caught up, you will be at the beginning
      again! Hopefully perfect timing.

      Anyway, I may not be able to read all the books
      at this time, but will try to keep up with other
      things. I have to get the current book on
      interlibrary loan and do not know when it will be
      here. I did get the Michael Grant book, so will
      not be a total ignoramus when it comes to Constantine.

      Happy reading

          The 7th and 8th centuries AD are NOT early Rome. In my mind, early Rome could not extend beyond the end of the Republic (27 B.C.) or so. . .COMMENTS??? JOHN

              My question to the group was this: Should we finish the Empire with
              "Justinian" - which sounds an interesting book, and then go back to early
              Rome (and as early as we find something to read about)?

              I take it that your vote is "no" and I will put you down as such.

              Irene (already doing research for Early Rome literature) :-)
