“Ancient Rome is another in the superb Eyewitness Books reference series for young people. Interesting, informative text combined with lots of great color photos bring the Roman Empire to life. Artifacts from the daily lives of slaves and emperors alike make the people seem real, their activities immediate. Special treats are the glass marbles--just like kids play with today--and centurion armor. A great addition to a young historian's bookshelf.” Welcome to My Blog! Please No mirrors.
