Synopsis

Hands-on History! Ancient Rome Step into the Time of the Roman Empire, with 15 Step-by-step Projects and Over 370 Exciting Pictures by Philip Steele

Step into the time of the Roman Empire, with 15 step-by-step projects and over 370 exciting pictures. You can travel back through the centuries to one of the greatest civilizations in history - the Roman Empire. You can discover fascinating facts about the Roman way of life, the clothes people wore, the entertainments they enjoyed, and the food they liked to eat. Fact boxes provide extra information and highlight links with the present. More than 370 photographs and illustrations include a pictorial timeline, cross sections and historical maps. 15 easy and fun projects enable you to bring the past to life - make a toga, put on a Roman show, and create a writing tablet like those used hundreds of years ago. It is ideal for home or school use for ages 8 to 12. The modern world owes a great deal to ancient Rome, including many principles of democratic government, law, poetry, drama, art and architecture. You can find out for yourself how the Romans forged the mightiest empire the world has ever known, and discover the techniques that their builders used to create vast cities, towering aqueducts and roads that survive to this day. Amazing projects allow you to construct a model Roman home, make a legionary's uniform, and fashion a headdress that will leave you looking fit to rule an empire!
