5.0 out of 5 stars not just for kids, 3 Jun 2008
I've been a fan of Caroline Lawrence's books for some time now, and they are a wonderful introduction to the Roman world. Because Ms Lawrence does immaculate research, her books teach whilst being fun. Most young people I've introduced them to have loved them, and I keep one handy for light reading - e.g. at airports. This book is particularly good for this as it is both an ancient travel guide, and a personal notebook recording the author's experiences abroad.
By all means get it for your children, but pinch it back once they have gone to bed.
