Product description


‘The Romans joins a field no less crowded today … It stands out for a number of reasons―it remains affordable, compact … concise … and attractively formatted. Its value to the 21st-century newcomer to ancient Rome is enhanced by a user-friendly website featuring supplementary materials in tabbed chapters and subheadings that correspond to the book, digital maps and a gallery of colour images keyed to individual chapters … The major strength of the new edition, however, remains Kamm’s distinctive voice―graceful prose with touches of irreverence and a style that combines analysis of detail with balanced overview … Never forgetting that we today are "foreigners," Kamm integrates ancient materials and modern analogues into a compelling narrative that is at once intelligent inquiry and absorbing story … This is an admirable introduction to the Romans for our time. Well-grounded in ancient sources and solid research, it will instruct and delight the general reader and be a popular class text for courses in Roman civilization and history.’ – Ann R. Raia, The Classical Journal

'Based on the book 'The Romans: An Introduction' by Anthony Kamm, this site is packed with nearly 70 pages of information, supported with insightful illustrations and images. The site also features 47 interactive quizzes to test your knowledge along the way... A well designed and easy-to-use site which covers a full range of topics.'  -
