Description of Rex
“The regal period of Roman history is studied much less than other periods of Rome, which is a tragedy. It is so intertwined with myth that it provides fertile ground for academics and general readers alike. Peta (Dr G) and Fiona (Dr Rad) of the Partial Historians podcast retell the stories of the seven kings of Rome, using scholarship on this early period to help readers dissect the events recorded in narrative and annalistic sources like Livy and Dionysius of Halicarnassus. It interweaves mythology, written sources and archaeological material into a narrative of the period, examining each of the kings in detail. A final chapter explores the expulsion of the monarchy.”Highlands Press
