On September 19, October 3 and October 17 we are discussing A History of the Roman World: 753 to 146 BC by H.H. Scullard.
H.H. Scullard in History of the Roman World: 753 to 146 BC has an excellent summary on the foundation legends of Rome.
First of all, I hope that the edition of History of the Roman World: 753 to 146 BC that the book chat participants have in their hands is the fourth edition, 1978, which is greatly revised over the original 1934 version, taking new research and archaeological findings into account.
