Leading ancient historian Adrian Goldswothy's new book examines the life of Augustus, the man who rose from an obscure teenager to become Rome's first and greatest emperor before his death two thousand years ago.

This is the story of how he became one of the most powerful men in the world, and stabilised an empire that had been ravaged by Civil War. Augustus's achievements, and his legacy are almost unparalleled.
Detailed and comprehensive, Goldsworthy's retelling the story of Augustus, brings this ancient story back to life, giving anyone from scholars to students, a chance to be immersed in the history of Augustus.
