History of Ancient RomeBook - 2000
It was the greatest empire ever built, with a conquering army of unequalled skill, rulers whose larger-than-life personalities continue to fascinate, and a vast and advanced culture. No discussion of our own civilization can get far without invoking Rome's name, whether the subject is law, politics, religion, war, or literature. Their buildings, the roads they built, their contributions to art and philosophy were the fruits of a flourishing, vibrant society. From the establishment of the republic to the legacy it left us, follow the thrilling narrative of Rome's history, impressively illustrated with over 200 photographs, drawings, and paintings showing the empire in its different phases. The spectacular remains are scattered over three continents, and its powerful influence will never fade.
