My name is Dr Simon Elliott and I am an historian and archaeologist, with nine books currently on sale, largely on Roman themes. A number of these are with the fabulous Pen & Sword, including Septimius Severus in Scotland and the forthcoming Pertinax: The Son of a Slave Who Became Roman Emperor, both through Greenhill Books.
