Once again Lord Terikel Grayhair has shaken his loose marbles, this time to examine just how tiny Rome, conquered by a Gallic tribe, could rise to rule over all Gallic peoples in less than four hundred years.

You may read this scroll to peruse his rather lengthy and thorough doctoral thesis on the subject.

Nice on Terikel.

A very interesting article, clearly the author knows the topic extensively and it shows in the depth and quality of information on offer. I would only criticise to say it is very very long, with no indication of this at the start, and can be a bit heavy at times. I'd half the lengths of some paragraphs and inject a few more lighter sentences and examples that are less serious to improve readability.

Is the Opening Post better now, with regards to correct warning of length and weight?

I majored in history and read history books and historical novels for fun to this day. Yet I never fail to learn some things whenever I read your missives Lord Terikel. Well done suh.

Great article. I always enjoy reading in depth about a particular subject. Being more of a "History of Everything Important that ever happened" kind of person, I some times skip over small details of things like this, so it's nice to read about specific things, and you're article was very well structured.
