    On 2 September 31 BC the superpowers of ancient Egypt and Rome met head-on for the first and last time in history. The outcome was the Battle of Actium, which would change the course of history and lead directly to the foundation of the Roman Empire.

    This dramatic story of a defining moment in history is retold in a fresh and exciting way – from the Egyptian standpoint, with bold characterization of the central personalities; Octavian, Mark Antony and Cleopatra. It features new translations of ancient sources, eye-witness accounts and lively anecdotes, alongside illustrations of evocative sites and iconic objects. This is the latest title in the British Museum Press' The Year that Shook series – gripping historical narratives highlighting the milestones and critical turning points; battles, revolutions and discoveries, that have defined world history.

    The authors: David Stuttard is a classicist and dramatist who has edited and authored numerous books on ancient culture. Sam Moorhead is National Finds Advisor for Iron Age and Roman coins in the Department of Portable Antiquities and Treasure in the British Museum.
