Book Summary of Collins Gem - Ancient Rome

(Paperback)

From aqueducts to baths, from gladiators to emperors, the fascinating history and mythology of ancient Rome are brought to life in this entertaining and highly-readable guide. With their sophisticated army, monuments, and roads, the Romans literally paved the way to modern Europe. Learn about the hand-to-hand combat at gladiatorial shows, rediscover the myths and legends of the Roman gods, and find out how and why Rome became the conquering superpower that it did. History will come to life in this engaging and comprehensive introduction to one of the most fascinating and influential places the world has ever known. A map of the Roman Empire and a timeline with the accomplishments of the emperors illustrate the chapters on geography and history. Roman culture, the gods and religious festivals, and mythology including Virgil's Aeneid, Romulus, and Remus are all discussed. Daily life in ancient Greece is covered for all different levels in society, including the jobs, family life, and leisure activities. The transition from republic to dictatorship is an important part of the discussion of politics, and the section on learning and knowledge covers law, science, architecture, literature, and art. Important wars, the Empire, and the army and navy are all explored. Finally, a look at contemporary Rome includes temples, archaeology, and modern tourist sites.
