The rise and fall of the Roman World is one of the most fascinating stories in history. This book traces the historical, cultural and political development of the small Iron Age tribe on the banks of the River Tiber who developed into the rulers of an empire that dominated the Western world. While her legionaries brought Roman rule to the far corners of Europe and the Middle East, her poets, architects, politicians and philosophers were creating a cultural legacy that still survives today. In this ambitious and lavishly illustrated book, the history of this remarkable people has been traced, allowing readers a clear and concise insight into the Roman World. Use the well-researched text, superb maps, specially commissioned artwork, and copious photographs the Atlas of Ancient Rome to follow the origins, rise, decline, and fall of the greatest empire the world has ever known.
