This book will enable you to step back two thousand years and look into the Romans' world—a world that was strikingly different from our own. The Roman Empire at its height included many nations; all were proud to call themselves Romans and all were encourage to use the standard language, Latin.
Part One examines the history of that Empire from its Etruscan origins to its greatest flowering and its subsequent decline.
Part Two takes you on a geographical tour of the Empire—province by province. Maps, text and illustrations all work together to provide a dynamic picture of the Roman World, so much of which is the essential background to our own world today.
