McKeown (ancient history, U. of Birmingham, UK) examines the way Anglophone historical interpretations of ancient, particularly Roman, slavery have varied over the years from 1930 to the present time. Concerned with the nature of historical generalization based on isolated evidence, he describes how historians of ancient slavery have often relied on similar evidence in order to construct narratives with strikingly different emphases. This does not suggest that some historians are engaging in bad history; merely that often the evidence of the past provides several plausible answers to historical questions.
