5.0 out of 5 stars brilliant introduction to classical studies!, 16 May 2011
This review is from: Chronicle of the Roman Emperors: The Reign-by-Reign Record of the Rulers of Imperial Rome (Hardcover)
The second in this series, covering the history of Rome from Augustus (31 BC) to the eastern and western emperors of the 6th century AD. Richly illustrated throughout, this covers the life of each ruler and really brings the era to life. An excellent and very readable book.
One of the useful aspects for me was being able to put a name and a face to those who initiated the construction of the many buildings we lump together as 'built by the Romans'. Who was this Caracalla who had the famous baths constructed in Rome and what was life like then? And why did Nerva build a forum?
Lots of info also on events within the empire at this time: Masada; the defeat of Zenobia; the Goths...
For earlier information on Rome see 'Chronicle of the Roman Republic' covering Romulus-Octavian (750 BC- 14 AD)
