Ruthless Romans (Horrible Histories)

5.0 out of 5 stars Modern antiquity: Variatio delectat, 2 Nov 2008
Deary's hugely successful series has come with a classic topic: the Romans. This book is aimed at middle-school kids in history or the classics - without making things dry, hard to understand and theoretical. The riddles, jokes and quizzes do NOT make the content less serious or falsify and distort it. It is just another way of presenting a civilization (and language) which is dead - and yet still so much alive in Western culture.
