Adrian Goldsworthy: How Rome Fell

Adrian Goldsworthy addressed perhaps the greatest of all historical questions in a presentation based on his monumental new work, How Rome Fell: Death of a Superpower.

In AD 200, the Roman Empire seemed unassailable. Its vast territory accounted for most of the known world. By the end of the fifth century, Roman rule had vanished in Western Europe and much of North Africa, and only a shrunken Eastern Empire remained. In his new book, Goldsworthy examines probable causes for the failure of this great state.
