Tacitus was a Roman historian who was born around the year 56/57 and died sometime after 117. He was famous in his own day, and his oratory skills were especially lauded by his peers. Thorough and full of insight and critique, Tacitus continues to be considered one of the foremost historians ever produced by ancient Rome. This video cites quotes from Tacitus’ Annals of Imperial Rome (translated by Michael Grant, Penguin Classics, 1996), as well as his Agricola and Germania (both translated by Harold Mattingly and J. B. Rives, Penguin Classics, 2009).
