Synopsis

Solving the Mysteries of Ancient Rome by Trudy Hanbury-Murphy

Rome is one of the world's most famous sites where ancient history can still be explored today. Rome was the seat of power of the Roman Empire and was ruled by many famous characters such as the military leader, Julius Caesar. The Roman army was hugely powerful and successful, but the Romans also loved culture, entertainment and art and were expert craftsmen. Solving the Mysteries of Ancient Rome explores this amazing city and looks in detail at famous sites such as the Colosseum and the Pantheon as well as other Roman technologies such as hypocausts, aqueducts and Roman roads. With Rome as a background the book fills in the details of what life would have been like for all kinds of different people who lived there at the time. It also explains how some of the archaeological discoveries were uncovered, which have helped to piece together our understanding of this fascinating place. This series investigates some of the most well-known sites of past civilisations. Shows archaeologists as detectives of the past and how they work to solve mysteries of ancient cultures and civilisations by literally 'Digging Into History'. A brilliant series for young history buffs and any child interested in archaeology.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
