Missing HBO Rome?

Missing HBO Rome? So am I. I can not wait until the next season comes out. I also hope the first season is released on DVD soon.

Want to read about Roman history while we wait? Here are some suggestions:

Roman History - This is a category at the Open Directory Project with 459 sites listed. You can lose one or more days reading here...

The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire - A hypertext indexed version of Edward Gibbons' classic text covering a broad history of the later Roman Empire.

Who was who in Roman Times - Index to persons, events, peoples and other subjects in Roman times largely based on sources from that time, and links to images.

De Imperatoribus Romanis (DIR) - Online encyclopedia covering the rulers of the Roman Empire from Augustus (27 BC-AD 14) to Constantine XI Palaeologus (1449-1453).

Julius Caesar and the End of the Roman Republic - Gives a brief history of the Roman Republic with an emphasis on how Julius Caesar brought about the transition to the Roman Empire.
