Synopsis

The Roman Empire Foundation Edition by John D. Clare

The Roman Empire is a resource for Key Stage 3 teaching and learning about the issues and events that characterize the history of the Roman peoples and their world. It never lets go of the period's story providing innovative and exciting opportunities to examine the big picture and investigate particular topics. Did you know that archaeologists have found ancient huts on the Palatine Hill in Rome, right where legends claim Romulus founded the city; that the government paid for free corn to be given to all citizens in Rome to make bread; or that the fine sand used on the floor of the Colosseum to soak up the blood of gladiators came from Egypt?

Reviews

Anyone who has seen a previous book from the Hodder series will appreciate how colourful and nicely presented these texts can be - these Roman books are no exception. The pupil tasks on each section are nicely varied and allow for timelines, text based answers, homework and extended writing. The Foundation text cuts out much of the detail found in the Core text and the tasks are well differentiated. -- Scottish Association of Teachers of History 20040901 Very well laid out, colourful, good text, and suits all ability ranges in school. -- A J Maguire, Lismore Comprehensive School 20021120
