"Antony Kamm provides a fresh account, for the general reader and the student, of Caesar's life, set against the historical, political, and social background of the times, with new translations from classical sources. Also featured are key figures such as Marius, Sulla, Cicero, Catiline, Pompey, Cato, Crassus, Clodius, Mark Antony, Servilia and her son Brutus, Gaius Octavius, who became the emperor Augustus, and his sister Octavia, Calpurnius Piso and his daughter Calpurnia (Caesar's wife), and Cleopatra, as well as the politicians who supported or opposed him and the military men who fought for and against him. For those people interested in the end of the Roman republic and the growth of the Roman empire, and the great figures of Roman history, this new look at an extraordinary man will be indispensable."--Jacket

The last frontier : the Roman invasions of Scotland by Antony Kamm( Book )
15 editions published between 2004 and 2011 in English and held by 162 libraries worldwide
"Ancient Scotland, then occupied by Celtic settlers, never became part of the Roman empire, in spite of being invaded on what is now accepted as four, rather than three, occasions. The northernmost frontier of the empire was fortified for only a few years after the battle of Mons Graupius in AD 84, when the Caledonians were defeated by Gnaeus Julius Agricola. An alternative frontier, represented by the elaborate defences of the Antonine Wall, was built in about 142. It was maintained hardly longer than 25 years, and by 180 the Roman invaders had retreated back to Hadrian's Wall. After further Celtic activity, a temporary truce was negotiated personally by the emperor Septimius Severus in 209. Thereafter, until their empire began to collapse, the Romans maintained a fragile hold on Hadrian's Wall in the face of furious attacks by marauding Picts and Scots, and a combined operation by land and sea in 367 against the whole of Roman Britain, by the northern Celts in an alliance with the Franks and Saxons."--Jacket
