Is it Romans's history or Britain history???
on 15 September 2011
Was looking for some entertaining historical facts about Romans' Empire and found not so much. I had a feeling that the only things Romans did during the world invasion is to invade UK. You have more historical facts about each buttle of brits against Romans or Romans against Brits then any fact of live of Romans in their own towns, democracy, etc. There are 136 pages in the book and first 45 of them are about Brits, Celts, etc - their life, their fights.
Probably, next time Terry Deary tries to write fun about history of any country he really needs some help from Peter Hepplewhite as he used in Awesome Egyptians - that book is REALLY funny and REALLY about Egyptians.
So, a book quite limited use vs the whole Horrible serie.
