Books By Author Joanne Berry

Complete Roman Legions by Joanne Berry Complete Roman Legions, Paperback (April 2015)

Focusing on the legions as the core of the Roman army, and chronicling their individual histories in detail, this volume builds on the thematic account of the Roman military force given by its companion The Complete Roman Army. It is suitable for anyone who has enjoyed that book.

Complete Pompeii by Joanne Berry Complete Pompeii, Paperback (March 2013)

The drama of Pompeii's end has been handed down by Roman writers, its paintings and mosaics have astonished visitors since their discovery and its houses and public buildings still present a vivid picture of life, disaster and death in a Roman town. This book includes a comprehensive account of its rise, splendour and fall.

Cultural Identity in the Roman Empire by Joanne Berry Cultural Identity in the Roman Empire, Paperback (January 2001)

This well documented and timely book presents cultural identity throughout the Roman empire as a complex and diverse issue, far removed from the previous notion of a dichotomy between the Roman invaders and the Barbarian conquered.
