Synopsis

Romans by Simon Adams, Barbara Taylor

Romans showcases one of the most spectacular civilizations in history, exploring the rise and fall of the Empire and its legacy. It tells the stories of the Roman army's greatest triumphs, its most powerful and infamous leaders, including Julius Caesar, and Rome's bravest gladiators. Young readers are fascinated by the mysteries of the past and how people lived many centuries ago. This book illuminates the lives of ordinary people who lived in towns such as Pompeii, the town buried in volcanic ash in 79 AD. We discover what they ate, where they lived, their language and pastimes - and how their lives are relevant to us today.Lavishly illustrated with stunning artworks, maps and photographs, this book is a wonderful introduction to the Roman world for every young reader.
