Taught Courses

I have taught a whole range of courses in Roman history. What follows is a brief summary of the content of some of them. This is a collection of what I have taught and I've simply put these here to establish the range of material and because old courses need to go somewhere to die. Thoose in Italics are currently redundant. 

For students of RHUL, the current versions of these courses are those within moodle and the details here may not be in date.
