Synopsis

Ancient Rome by Mike Corbishley

Ancient Rome, New Edition tells the story of the mighty civilization that extended from Africa to Britain to Asia 2,000 years ago. This book features an atlas that is divided into two sections: A History of an Empire reveals how the Romans gradually became the most important power in the Mediterranean. Topics explored include the mysterious Etruscans, the rise of Julius Caesar, Roman men and women, the Roman baths, imperial Rome, and the Roman ship. The Geography of an Empire follows the effect the Romans had on the lands they conquered. Themes treated in this section include the Roman town, buildings and technology, the Roman villa, ancient Greece, and the exotic East. Ancient Rome, New Edition offers a wealth of lively information about the geography, society, politics, and religion of this important ancient culture. Highlighted by beautifully illustrated maps and charts that bring life to important dates and events, this book helps students envision the far-reaching impact and legacy of Rome.
