In the third century AD, the Roman empire was lapsing into chaos with civil wars over the imperial succession. Without Aurelian, the 'Dark Ages' probably would have lasted centuries longer - his achievement was such that the Roman Senate dubbed him 'the restorer of the world'. This work examines Aurelian's legacy to the Roman Empire.
