The first edition of The Cambridge Ancient History was completed by Volume 12 which closed in AD 324. Volume XIII of the new edition of The Cambridge Ancient History moves into fresh territory, covering the years 337–425, from the death of Constantine to the reign of Theodosius II. It begins with a series of narrative chapters, followed by a section on government and institutions. The economy and society, foreign relations and the barbarian world, religion, literary cultures and art are all covered.

'I had bought this volume before I was asked to review it, the best possible compliment surely to publishers, editors, and contributors alike.' The Classical Review
'Cameron and Garnsey deserve congratulations for this: the volume will last at least as long as the first editions of CAH did (of course they did not cover this period at all), and maybe longer.' Journal of Roman Studies
