Synopsis

Julius Caesar and the Romans by David Gill

Julius Caesar was the most famous of all the great Roman leaders. His military exploits were legendary and he added land, riches and prestige to the vast, powerful Roman empire. However his power came at a terrible cost, as he was brutally murdered at the hands of his most trusted friends and advisors. Suitable for readers aged 8+, each book in History Starting Points explores the life and times of a key historical figure, from Alfred the Great to Hatshepsut. It tells the story of the subject's life, using vital primary source material, such as what contemporary people wrote about the figure. Alongside this, each book builds up a vivid picture of the historical era in which the person lived, from Anglo-Saxon Britain to the civilisations of ancient Greece and Egypt. Included throughout are cross-curricular links to other key subject areas such as literacy, science or geography, and the text is supported by cartoon, myths and legends and fun craft projects to make.
