Romulus' Asylum: Roman Identities from the Age of Alexander to the Age of Hadrian

Romulus' Asylum: Roman Identities from the Age of Alexander to the Age of Hadrian

Modern treatments of Rome have projected in highly emotive terms the perceived problems, or the aspirations, of the present: 'race-mixture' has been blamed for the collapse of the Roman empire; more recently, Rome and Roman society have been depicted as 'multicultural'. Moving beyond these and beyond more traditional, juridical approaches to Roman identity, Emma Dench focuses on ancient modes of thinking about selves and relationships with other peoples, including descent-myths, history, and ethnographies. She explores the relative importance of sometimes closely interconnected categories of blood descent, language, culture and clothes, and territoriality. Rome's creation of a distinctive imperial shape is understood in the context of the broader ancient Mediterranean world within which the Romans self-consciously situated themselves, and whose modes of thought they appropriated and transformed.

Bengt Thordeman - Armour from the Battle of Wisby 1361. Vol. I, Vol. II

The Battle of Wisby, at which 1800 hastily assembled peasants gathered in vain to defend their city from the onslaught of Waldemar of Denmark, is perhaps the most celebrated medieval battle in Scandinavia and yet, were it not for the mass graves of the defenders, it would be all but unknown to Western students of medieval history. The peat bog in which the bodies were hurriedly buried after days in the hot sun preserved not only bones but also harnesses and accoutrements, leaving the most important archaeological record for the period. Published originally in 1939, Bengt Thordeman's work on the battle, developed from the thousands of artefacts discovered in the mass burial, has been cited in virtually every bibliography on the subjects of arms and armour and used as a key source for the dating of medieval coins.

Letters from the Afterlife is a hopeful, inspiring after-death communication received by a woman almost a century ago. In the early part of the twentieth century, a woman began a process of "automatic writing" - as though she were an instrument for someone else's words. Days later she discovered that the "writer" - identified as attorney and author David Patterson Hatch - died thousands of miles away, and he was telling his story of life after death through her. The resulting book, originally published as Letters from a Living Dead Man in 1914, gained widespread popularity and was hailed for helping remove the fear of dying. An eyewitness account of the afterlife, told while the storyteller was there, the book describes life after death in minute detail, including the consequences of suicide, how loved ones find each other, and the relationship with higher beings.
