About the Author

Kathryn Lomas is Honorary Research Fellow and part-time lecturer in Classics and Ancient History at Durham University.


Lomas' clear narrative and up-to-date archaeological knowledge is just the right combination to bring the fascinating story of the emergence of Rome as a world power to a wider audience.--Christopher Smith, Director of the British School at Rome and Professor of Ancient History at St Andrews
This is an admirably clear and engagingly written book. It offers an impressively wide-ranging and up-to-date synthesis, and does an excellent job of situating the city-state of Rome and its rise to hegemony in their wider Italian context.--J.H. Richardson, Massey University
Lomas shows great skill in uncovering reliable and fascinating information about an obscure and poorly documented period of history and presenting it in a clear and straightforward way. Her book is unusual for its extensive use and up-to-date knowledge of archaeological evidence and for its distinctive emphasis on the Italian background to the rise of Rome.--Timothy Cornell, University of Manchester
Kathryn Lomas has excavated the complexities of myth, written sources, and archaeological stratigraphy to produce her clear historical synthesis of the political foundations of early Europe.--Simon Stoddart, Magdalene College, University of Cambridge
