Suggested Topics for the Month

Postby Gaia Cassia Longina » Sat Aug 06, 2016 1:40 pm

Salvete omnes!

I hope you're having a wonderful summer! I was thinking of assigning a topic to read every 3 months for the book theme. I figure every 3 months would give people time to read the book at their own pace.
Here are my ideas:

September: General Roman History
SPQR, Mary Beard
An Early History of Rome, Livy
The Death of Caesar, B. Strauss
The Fall of the Roman Republic, Plutarch

December: Cooking
Around the Roman Table
Roman Recipes, Apicius

March: Daily Life
Daily Life in Ancient Rome
How to Manage Your Slaves
Rome on 5 Denarii A Day

June: Poetry & Plays
The Haunted House Plautus

September: Warfare [/list]
Civil Wars , Appian
Bello Gallico, Caesar
The Roman Army, Pat Southern

Of course, your input and ideas are welcome. If you have a better topic, please feel free to suggest it. As more people join, more topics will be added and then voted upon.

I hope you all are well!
