Great Russian site dedicated to Ancient Roman History. It has a big library of ancient Greek and Roman primary sources, a lot of secondary sources, numismatic catalogue, different maps (many of them are in Latin and completely available for English speaking people) and, that`s very important, great collection of Ancient Roman and Greek art with English search form.

Some excellent historians are
Plutarch
Xenophon
Arrian
Herodotus
Tacitus
 
Suetonius is excellent for some small interesting quick reading about the Caesars, but he is not as serious as other roman historians. For example, he concentrates mainly on the personal lives of the Caesars and completly ignores Claudius's invasion of Britian and the fact that Vespasian commanded the 2nd Legion from the South East of England.
 
I find the letters of Pliny the Younger to be an excellent insight into Roman life- they are so vibrant and informative and it also gives you an excellent view into the Psycology and behavior of the Romans
 
Tacticus is very reliable and solid- not only was he a senator, but also a soldier and scholar- and his histories, particually his "Annals of Imperial Rome" are a great read!

You didn`t mention Thucydides. Is he excellent in your opinion? And what about Livius? Smile

I have not read Thuycydides, nor Livius. Don't get me wrong- i'm not attempting to judge them- i don't have the knowledge- i'm just saying what the offical opinion of them is. If i want to learn from these books, it's best to understand which can provide you with the best un-bias sources

...I've just read Thucyidides- very insightful and interesting, but obviously quite bias- he was an Athenian commander- despite his claims, it its impossible for him to not be bias!

Polybius for history,Epictetus for philosophy.
apparently much of polybius and Plutarch were read alot by the US founding fathers.can see then where they get there ideals of natural law from,and of course cicero.
and yeah it would be great if we had all of Livy's books.
 
Thanks all for the links too.
 
should do a topic, on who burned all the books.
