No, no, no, no, no, no, NO!
Referring to Rome in 165-166 AD, Wright writes (ha):
"As you might expect, malaria, typhoid, dysentery, hepatitis, and cholera all thrived during the period."
Cue sputtering and incoherent swearing. Since Wright talks about John Snow, she should know that cholera didn't arrive in Europe before the 19th century. Now everything in this chapter is suspect. And in her chapter on cholera.
Wright has some curious opinions about military forces, as she writes on page 8:
"If they did see battle, the Roman troops were stunningly, perhaps even unnecessarily, well equipped."
Unnecessarily? How can troops be unnecessarily well-equipped?
Is this what you were looking for in terms of tearing it apart, Elentarri?
