Unit description:

Deals with the social, economic and administrative structure of the Roman imperial system during its full period of development from the end of the first century to the mid-third century AD. The unit concentrates on topics such as social structure, slavery, the role of cities, agriculture, the Roman imperial army, and elite careers. The approach is thematic and does not include a continuous narrative of historical events. The sources used will be predominantly documentary, including inscriptions, coins and, where appropriate, archaeological material, but will also include a wide range of literary sources.
