Online library: resource for Roman history

Hi all, I've been looking for easily accessible information on the interrelationships between the Jugurthine War, the Cimbric migrations and the ongoing problems the Romans were having with the Scordisci and friends. Found this on the web:

There's quite a lot of other material on there too - might be of interest to someone?

The reason I was looking is because this is where we have got to with our ongoing campaign, with me umpiring and the guys in Glasgow playing the battles.

QUICK EDIT: I posted this link on the Society of Ancients forum, and the consensus there is that erenow is a form of internet 'privateering'. In other words, they'll post stuff, but if the author sees it and complains enough they'll take it down. Not quite piracy, but close...


  1. Well we shan't encourage them by visiting it then, eh?!
    Do you know who they nicked it from?

  2. Hi James, it's "The Crisis of Rome: The Jugurthine and Northern Wars and the Rise of Marius" by Gareth Sampson. It does look really good, so I've ordered it from Amazon in the UK.
