How did an insignificant cluster of Latin hill villages on the edge of the civilised world become the greatest empire the world has known?

Richard Miles examines the phenomenon of the Roman Republic, from its fratricidal mythical beginnings, with the legend of Romulus and Remus, to the all too real violence of its end, dragged to destruction by war lords like Pompey the Great and Julius Caesar.
