Summary
Both archaeological and historical evidence are represented in this thematically arranged guide to the history of Rome from its beginnings in the 8th century B.C. to the 5th century A.D. The first chapter, "Republic and Empire," gives a chronological overview as well as geographies, a list of emperors, and basic information about government and law. This framework is followed by chapters on the military, daily life, travel and trade, religion, and the economy as well as geography, and language and literature. The articles are summaries with references for further exploration. About 150 black and white illustrations and 4 tables add meaning tot he text. The useful and readable information will answer question for both world history and Latin students and for readers of novels set in the era. Highly recommended for high school collections
