Summary
The assumption is that most of what we know about the Romans and their history comes from Roman and Greek historians. While this is true up to a point, the reality is that there are many other primary sources that combine to give us the composite picture we have today of the Romans and their world. The Romans had, in effect, their own brand of social media, engineered to disseminate information, legislation, propaganda, and misinformation to state and religious officials, citizens, the military, and to the enemy--wherever they be. We know what the Romans did for us: roads, central heating, and so on, but, just as importantly, they also developed and perfected records, record-keeping, and other methods of information storage and communication. It is the Roman preoccupation with record keeping and dissemination that informs the picture we have today of Roman civilisation. Roman Record Keeping & Communications is the first to analyse what Roman social media is: the keeping of records and archive material, and ways of communicating it. Uniquely, this volume assesses the impact this information had in Roman history and on our own appraisal of that history
