From the city of Pompeii'frozen in time by volcanic ash and lava'to the Coliseum's famed gladiators'treated like rock stars'ancient Rome had it all: Gods and Goddesses, infamous emperors, crippling warfare, and beautiful art.

Architectural ruins, ancient texts, and everyday items'like the iron collars used on slaves'show us how ancient Romans really lived. The Ancient Roman World focuses not only on the wars and government problems of the time, but also on the lives of common Romans. This intriguing and well-researched text written by a historian and a children's author provides a thorough understanding of everything you need to know about ancient Rome's rise and fall and will transport modern listeners back to the days of the Ceasars.
