The Lovereading comment:
Adopting the same technique as he employs in Weird World of Wonders: Egyptians Tony Robinson brings the magnificent Roman world alive. From the famous story of the twins Romulus and Remus, who founded the city after having been brought up by a she-wolf, to the collapse of the mighty empire despite the power of Rome’s huge army, questions about all the good – and the bad - things about Rome are explored.
