About
The Pax Romana provided a remarkable period of peace and stability, rarely seen before or since. Yet the Romans were first and foremost conquerors. So what exactly was the Pax Romana, and what did it mean for the people who found themselves brought under Roman rule?

Acclaimed historian Adrian Goldsworthy tells the story of the creation of the EMpire, taking the reader on a journey from the bloody conquests of the Republic through the age of Caesar and Augustus to the golden period of peace and prosperity under emperors such as Marcus Aurelius, offering a balanced and nuanced reappraisal of life in the Roman Empire.
