Ancient Rome, The Definitive Visual History

Immerse yourself in the history of ancient Rome - from its origins as a small settlement on the Palatine Hill to its peak as an empire reigning over 90 million people, and its tumultuous decline.

Covering more than 1,000 years of history, and an empire that stretched from Scotland to Syria, Ancient Rome reveals in vivid detail all of the key political, cultural, and military events that shaped the Roman Empire and explores what it was like to live in a society that laid the foundations for many aspects of the modern world.

Sumptuous photography and engaging text cover every facet of life in ancient Rome, from art, entertainment, and fashion to engineering, medicine, and war, while detailed maps trace the rise of the mighty Roman Empire.
