The surviving literary works that do exist are biased towards the Roman point of view, as are the sources for two other famous women who challenged Rome, Cleopatra and Boudica. Zenobia was acknowledged in her lifetime as beautiful and clever, gathering writers and poets, artists and philosophers around her at the Palmyrene court. It was said that Zenobia claimed descent from Cleopatra, which cannot be true but is indicative of how she saw herself and how she intended to be seen by others at home and abroad.

The growing threat from Germanic tribes and the Persian Empire, combined with internal difficulties, shook Rome to the core. In many respects the Empire should have collapsed, yet it didn't. Pat Southern's narrative synthesizes a wealth of recent scholarship to bring the era to life. She shows that many of the third century leaders, particularly Gallienus, have been underrated. Far from being responsible for the travails faced by the Empire, their efforts towards consolidation enabled it to survive and helped to transform it into the sacrosanct, absolutist regime that emerged under Diocletian and Constantine."--BOOK JACKET+-+899487069557823ocn035247589book19960.59Southern, PatThe late Roman armyHistoryMilitary historythese growing threats and how effective it was in combating them+-+189315558532457110ocn000045761book19690.39Peel, EdgarThe trials of the Lancashire Witches; a study of seventeenth-century witchcraftHistory52915ocn036629859book19970.66Southern, PatDomitian : tragic tyrantBiographyDomitian was only nineteen when he made his first appearance in the senate. It was also his first meeting with the men who were to bring about his downfall. Following his assassination in 96 AD after a reign that had lasted fifteen turbulent years, the senate declared the memory of this, the last of the Flavian emperors damned forever. Why? The surviving record relates tales of unbelievable depravity - Domitian's reign being described as the darkest in history, full of terror and uncertainty. Suetonius documents all Domitian's eccentricities, idiosyncrasies and crimes in ascending order of seriousness, culminating in the list of executions of senators - ten in fifteen years. But was his reign as bad as it has been portrayed? Why did contemporary authors have no good word for him even though their careers were advanced by his imperial favour? Many of the emperor's earlier achievements were enduring and well-advised - his administrative arrangements survived him, unchanged by later emperors - and his frontier wars were by no means ill-considered. Indeed, the number of senators murdered by him was far smaller than those killed by Claudius. Something indefinable had gone wrong between Domitian and the senate, but what? In this new in-depth study, Pat Southern distinguishes fact from fiction. She strips away the hyperbole and sensationalism from the literary record to present a clear picture of the youth and reign of a man who was not as black as he was painted but who caused undoubted suffering which must be accounted for. For the first time Domitian is examined from a psychological point of view, to reveal a living breathing individual - offering a more reasonable explanation of the tragedy of his reign to satisfy both his detractors and his few champions+-+807016069538420ocn060007703book19920.56Dixon, Karen RThe Roman cavalry : from the First to the Third Century ADHistoryMilitary historyTransportmittel und Zubehör - Militärgeschichte - Waffen/Militaria+-+248526069520416ocn040683535book19980.31Southern, PatMark AntonyBiographyHistory has not been kind to Mark Antony, but then he was probably his own worst enemy, fatally flawed, too fond of wine and women, extravagant, impetuous, reckless, always in debt, and attached to all the wrong people. There is some truth in this list of Antony's failings, but the propaganda machine of his enemy, Octavian, ensured that these facets of Antony's character were the only ones to survive. There is no mention of the fact that Caesar, who could not afford to promote incompetent assistants, found in Antony a very able lieutenant. Nor is it acknowledged that immediately after the assassination of Caesar in 44 BC, it was Antony and not Octavian who held the state together, when it could so easily have slipped into chaos+-+71596970252028ocn148300583book20070.29Southern, PatAntony & CleopatraBiography+-+18389970251824ocn427612620book20090.31Southern, PatAncient Rome : the rise & fall of an Empire, 753 BC-AD 476History+-+85563139361698ocn041925603book19990.31Southern, PatCleopatraBiography+-+00896970253241055ocn050101802book20020.50Southern, PatPompey the GreatHistoryBiography+-+36707970251012ocn761368296book20110.53Southern, PatRoman Britain : a new history 55 BC-AD 450885ocn049873677book20000.47Southern, PatJulius CaesarBiography+-+5899697025324872ocn747915639book20110.35Southern, PatAncient Rome : the Republic, 753 B.C.-30 B.C.History+-+7279510996603ocn784578783book20120.18Southern, PatThe story of StonehengeHistoryStonehenge is the best known but least understood prehistoric monument in the British Isles. Other stone circles are impressive and atmospheric, but none approach the sophistication of Stonehenge. The stones visible today represent the final phase of a monument that was begun about 5,000 years ago, and altered several times during the next fifteen centuries, before it was finally abandoned. The site may have been a sacred place for at least 10,000 years, reaching back to about 8,000 BC, when people of the Mesolithic era began to set up pine totem poles, the holes for which were found in excavations close to the circle. Patricia Southern's new history considers the conflicting theories around how it was built with such precision and why. Did the stones arrive at Stonehenge by humans, or were they transported there by glaciers long before the first monument was built? Was it a religious center for unknown rites and ceremonies? Did it function as an observatory for the sun and the moon, a sort of stone calendar to mark the seasons and the appropriate festivals? One thing it never was, a Druid temple. It was built, used, and abandoned long before the ancient Druids came on the scene, but their modern counterparts have claimed it, so in that sense it is still a temple, just as it can be for any other visitors to this important World Heritage Site593ocn806493905book20120.56Southern, PatThe story of Roman BathHistoryIllustrated with over 100 photographs, drawings and plans, this book provides a comprehensive history of Roman Bath572ocn721889706book20110.22Southern, PatAncient Rome : the Empire, 30BC-AD476HistoryBiography+-+5379510996462ocn751717540book20110.20Southern, PatRoman Britain : a new history 55 BC-450 AD+-+2082456036324+-+2082456036324Thu Oct 16 15:57:21 EDT 2014batch19423
