Welcome to the Roman and Byzantine military history task force of the Military history WikiProject! If you have any questions about articles or are generally seeking advice, you're encouraged to ask at the main military history talk page, or you can directly approach one of the task force participants below.

The coordinators of the Military history WikiProject can be contacted here.


The scope of this task force includes Roman and Byzantine military history, from the founding of Rome in 753 BC to the fall of Byzantine Empire and its remnants in 1453/60 AD. The task force covers anything related to the Roman military, including wars and campaigns, weapons and tactics, individual units, and the generals and soldiers that fought in them.

Any article related to this task force should be marked by adding |Roman-task-force=yes to the {{WPMILHIST}} project banner at the top of its talk page (see the project banner instructions for more details on the exact syntax). This will automatically place it into Category:Roman and Byzantine military history task force articles.


If you approach anyone from this list for advice or help, please check their contributions first to check if they've edited recently. This list may contain people who have not edited Wikipedia in a long time.

If you wish to identify yourself as a participant of this task force, simply copy and paste this userbox to your user page: {{Wikipedia:WikiProject Military history/Members/User WPMILHIST Roman and Byzantine military history task force}}
