“The way to a landowner's heart was to tax gently.”
Peter Heather, The Fall of the Roman Empire: A New History of Rome and the Barbarians

“By virtue of its unbounded aggression, Roman imperialism was ultimately responsible for its own destruction.”
Peter Heather, The Fall of the Roman Empire: A New History of Rome and the Barbarians

“To reach Greenland, turn left at the middle of Norway, keep so far north of Shetland that you can only see it if the visibility is very good, and far enough south of the Faroes that the sea appears half way up the mountain slopes. As for Iceland, stay so far to the south that you only see its flocks of birds and whales. So, ROUGHLY PARAPHRASED, run the navigational directions in an Icelandic manual of the Middle Ages,”
Peter Heather, Empires and Barbarians
