Discovering Ancient Rome


Rome was the city that conquered the entire Mediterranean world. For almost 500 years, it presided over that world, shaping it, and providing instruction for all those who came later. The city fell to the barbarians, and the empire ceased to exist, but the ideas and ideals that built both the city and the empire can still be felt today. This book presents the fascinating empire of Ancient Rome, from its rise to its fall. Readers will learn how Romans lived their daily lives, as well as the accomplishments they contributed that continue to influence the world today.
