Step back in time 2,000 years to visit the powerful Roman Empire. Every page reveals a fabulous treasure and its unique story—from gladiator battles with lions; chariot races for vast cheering crowds; and mock naval ship battles in flooded auditoriums, to mythical tales of magic and monsters; gods and goddesses for every occasion; and wondrous feasts in fantastical gardens.

Learn about Ancient Rome’s fast-food joints, the original multi-tool pocketknife, and how some escaped Pompeii’s legendary volcanic eruption.

DOZENS OF ARTIFACTS: Learn about 36 iconic objects, from a gladiator’s sword to the original multi-tool pocketknife.

BEAUTIFULLY ILLUSTRATED: Vibrant, detailed images of the art, objects, people, and icons of Ancient Rome.
