A good starters guide to life in Second Century Rome
on 5 December 2015
This is a good little book, which gives you a whistlestop tour of Rome in about 200ce. Written in a 'Rough Guide' style, it has chapters on such things as eating, shopping, sightseeing, religion and entertainment. It gives a good feel of life in the imperial capital at its height. For those who already have a little knowledge of Rome, it probably won't add much new, but if you want a place to start - or perhaps are a reader of historical fiction set in Rome, wanting to check some facts - this would be as good as any.
