Description
A photo essay documenting ancient Rome and the people who lived there as revealed through the many artifacts they left behind, including shields, swords, tools, toys, cosmetics, and jewelry. Here is a spectacular and informative guide to the fascinating story of ancient Rome. Superb color photographs of Roman armor, tools, jewelry and more give the reader a unique "eyewitness" insight into the history of the Roman Empire. See the sword of Tiberius, a gladiator's helmet and shield, the contents of a Roman burial urn, real food cooked from Roman recipes, marbles Roman children played with, and inside the colosseum. Learn how the Romans built roads, why the baths were so popular, how Roman physicians healed the sick, why the army was so efficient, and how wine was made. Discover how sea battles were staged in the colosseum, what Roman children learned at school, how Roman society was organized, and much, much, more.
