About this book

The early Romans were only one of a number of peoples that inhabited Iron Age
central Italy. From the 8th to the 3rd century BC, the Romans undertook
territorial expansion, and conflict with neighbouring tribes and cultures
resulted in open war, most notably with the Samnites. Alliances sprang were
created too - but the rise of Rome was unstoppable. This title covers the
equipment, weaponry and dress of the early Romans, from the traditional
foundation in 753 BC to the third century BC, where the dominance of Rome was
beyond challenge. It also deals with developments in warfare, covering the early
cavalry, the pre-hoplite army, the hoplite army and the manipular army. Etruscan,
Latin, and Samnite warfare are also discussed. Men-at-Arms 283, 291 and 46 are
also available in a single volume special edition as 'Caesar's Legions'.
