From School Library Journal:

Grade 7 Up-Excerpts from historians such as Plutarch, Livy, and Suetonius, as well as the satires of Juvenal and poetry of Ovid, are included in this history of ancient Rome as told through the words of those who lived at the time. Various chapters cover the founding of the city, Julius Caesar's life, the reign of Augustus, home and family life, entertainment, leisure, and religion. No attempt is made to be comprehensive, but each chapter does begin with an introduction that helps to put the subject in perspective for modern readers. Each selection ends with a note citing the ancient sources; there is no complete listing of these sources. The title is somewhat misleading; certainly Julius Caesar's commentaries on the Gallic Wars qualify as a primary source since he was an eyewitness, but many of the accounts were written years, even centuries after the events being described. Small black-and-white illustrations appear throughout, but not one map is to be found. A supplemental resource for students of Roman history.
