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.

A fantastic new history series from the acclaimed Tony Robinson.

Tony Robinson takes you on a headlong gallop through time, pointing out all the most important, funny, strange, amazing, entertaining and gory bits about the Romans! It's history, but not as we know it! Find out everything you ever needed to know in this brilliant, action-packed, fact-filled book including: - How to keep the gods happy - Why you should never ignore an omen - How to defeat an army who are riding elephants, and - How to spot a barbarian.

Although Tony is better known for his television work (including 'Blackadder' and 'Time Team') he is already an award winning children’s author; his book The Worst Children’s Jobs in History won the Best Book with Facts category at the Blue Peter Book Awards.
