If you have an interest in ancient Rome, and like the idea of a book that is full of interesting titbits from that period, then this is most definitely the book for you. The bite-sized pieces of information are all historically referenced. Twenty-three chapters on subjects ranging from family life, names, the army and slaves to animals, buildings and toilets provide a huge number of interesting points.
Very enjoyable reading, from a couple of minutes dipping in, to longer periods when wanting to know more about a particular subject.
A great book if you like Roman stuff. What I like about it is you can pick it up and just open a page and find something interesting without having to read it from page to page. Prompt delivery. Very happy , thanks.
really interesting, well worth it for the content - would have got 5 stars but the quality of the paper used for pages and the fact it was only black and white let it down a little. would still recommend however
