stdyngs:

so as an aspiring classicist (slash medievalist) i like roman history A Lot, and i read about it A Lot, and over time i’ve come up with A Lot of reliable resources for studying it. 

online:

ancient sources:

  • the history of rome (livy) – covers from rome’s (obscure, semimythological) early history all the way up to the reign of augustus. long, dull, but relatively worth it.
  • lives of the twelve caesars (suetonius) – deals with the lives of julius caesar through to emperor domitian. fair warning: people don’t call suetonius an ancient gossip columnist for nothing, so take him with a grain of salt.
  • annals (tacitus) – reign of tiberius to reign of nero, everyone loves this one.
  • de bello gallico (julius caesar) – caesar’s own record of his campaign in gaul, aka roman war propaganda. short but important part of roman history.

books:

i’ve read most of these and been recommended the rest, but they reflect my own interest in specific subjects. you can find a more comprehensive list here.
