Synopsis: Rome grew from a small settlement on the banks of the Tiber to become a great city, and eventually the capital of the greatest empire of the ancient world. The legacy of Rome is its Latin language, its laws, its architecture and the urge to create empire, from the Holy Roman Empire itself to the European Union.
Ancient Rome recreates the lives and beliefs of the ancient Romans in a lively and historically specific manner through linking text with photographs and illustrations to describe daily life over a period of 600 years (200 BCE-400 CE). By connecting an illustration of the past to current photographs, Ancient Rome provides a clear picture of how ancient life is reconstructed. Archaeology and "How Do We Know?" boxes, providing evidence for the information presented, show how knowledge of the past is authenticated. A detailed timeline, a glossary, a further information section and an index round out this clearly presented and engaging book.
Rich with evidence and colorful descriptions, Ancient Rome is a valuable guide to discovering the roots of western civilization.
Ancient Rome is part of the Picturing the Past Series from Enchantend Lion Books:
How do we know what we know about ancient peoples and their cultures that have disappeared? Ultimately, there are three main sources of information: the images that survive in wall paintings, ceramics and sculptures; artifacts, such a jewelry, utensils, toys, clothing, and tools; and the writings of ancient authors that have survived the ravages of time. From such sources, it is possible to begin to reconstruct the life of the distant past with an astonishing degree of accuracy.
