The first half of this magnificent book focuses on the political and military history of Rome. The assassination of Julius Caesar, Nero fiddling while Rome burns, the building of Hadrian’s Wall – the truth behind these and many other events are explored in this account of the rise and fall of a mighty empire. The second half focuses on Rome’s influence on the development of world art, architecture and society. Detailed drawings of the Colosseum and other World Heritage buildings reveal Roman techniques and architectural styles. Ancient letters, records and artworks show how real people lived during one of the cultural peaks of world history.
