Course Description: In this course we will survey and discuss the history of the Roman republic from the First Punic War to the 'late' republic. The common (base) text will be Ward, Heichelheim, Yeo: 'A History of the Roman People.' We will also read passages from the relevant historians of the Punic Wars and middle and late republic in translation or other works as interest on specific topics arises.
