Giusto Traina is an Italian historian and professor of Roman and Byzantine history at the Paris-Sorbonne University. He is interested in the study of ancient landscapes and techniques and is currently conducting long-term research on ancient Armenia. In his most recent book, 428 AD An Ordinary Year at the End of the Roman Empire, the narrative focuses on a single year, 428 CE, the year that the Kingdom of Armenia fell. Traina’s narrative illuminates the breadth of the late Roman Empire in transition from its Classical past to its Medieval and Byzantine future
