Tom Holland Pax: War and Peace in Rome’s Golden Age

Saturday 28 October 2023

Crowne Plaza Hotel

The renowned historian brings the third in the epic trilogy narrating the history of the Roman Empire. The series that began with Rubicon, and continued with Dynasty, now arrives at the period which marks the apogee of the pax Romana. It provides a portrait of the ancient world’s ultimate superpower at war and at peace: from the gilded capital to the barbarous realms beyond the frontier, from emperors to slaves. Tom is also the author of Persian Fire and Millennium, and co-hosts the hugely popular The Rest is History podcast with Dominic Sandbrook.
