Summary

Summary

The imperial cities had fresh-water aqueducts, and the paved Roman roads were so deftly constructed that many of them lasted for centuries. Readers will visit the halls of emperors, the workshops of craftsmen, and the fields of farmers in this engaging tour of one of the largest empires the world has ever known.

School Library Journal Review

Gr 4-7‘A lavishly illustrated introduction to Roman culture and history. Although there isn't enough material for school reports, this is one of the most attractive additions to an ever-growing list of titles about ancient cultures. Well-designed double-page spreads cover history, government, religion, social customs, and leading personalities. One four-page gatefold depicts the ancient rock of Masada. A chronological listing of emperors is included. Full-color drawings and photographs of sculptures, reliefs, and frescoes fill in some of the details. There's nothing new here, but the combination of a well-written, lucid text and vivid illustrations may encourage curious students to move on to more solid sources. A good choice if basic, introductory material is needed.‘Cynthia M. Sturgis, Ledding Library, Milwaukee, OR (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
