One of the best-preserved and most significant Roman Imperial monuments, the column of Marcus Aurelius in Rome depicts some of the most violent and harrowing scenes of Warfare known from the Roman World. Fully illustrated, in this, the first ever detailed study of this monument published in English, Iain Ferris analyses the military campaigns recorded on the frieze and discusses the column in its broader political, artistic and cultural context. This is an important study of a period that proved to be a turning point for the Roman Empire, with its growing and deep-seated fear of barbarian incursions - a fear that was to prove justified for the Western Roman Empire. Dr Iain Ferris works as an independent archaeological consultant and has directed archaeological excavations in northern and midland England and lectured widely on Roman art and archaeology. His other book "Enemies of Rome and Barbarians Through Roman Eyes" was published by Sutton in 2000.
