Welcome to Richard's site about the Roman Civilisation

Started in 1996 following one of my numerous trips to Rome I felt that with the increasing amount of things I was learning at school I was beginning to be saturated and that without writing it down it may be lost.

Roman Ruins in Rome

I began this part of the website when I was around 15-16 years old. It's five years later and the website is still working well.

My work load is not as great as it used to be and I hope to improve pages such as that on Julius Caesar and add more elements.
