Steven Neil (Steve) Mason

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The first half asks 'What is history, and how should we go about doing the history of Roman Judaea?' In the second I illustrate my proposals with reference to two problem sets: the defeat of Cestius Gallus at Beit-Horon and the fall of the temple to Titus.
