Adrian Goldsworthy to cover Augustus' life

10th June 2010

Classical historian Adrian Goldsworthy is to publish two new books on the ancient world - with one looking at the first Roman emperor.

Orion Books imprint Weidenfeld & Nicolson has acquired two titles from the writer for a 'handsome' six-figure sum.

The first book, which will be published in 2014, is a biography of the emperor Augustus and will follow the life of the man who was the first ruler of the Roman empire.

Goldsworthy's forthcoming work - Antony and Cleopatra - deals with the period just prior to this and will be released on July 15th.

Keith Lowe, editor of non-fiction at Weidenfeld & Nicolson, said he is 'delighted' to have acquired the latest books by the historian, as the two have worked together for the past ten years.

'There are very few classicists who can match his ability to make serious scholarship so accessible to ordinary readers. These books will build on an impressive backlist,' he commented.

Other works by Goldsworthy include In the Name of Rome: The Men Who Won the Roman Empire, The Fall of Carthage and Caesar.
