New master work by worldwide bestselling illustrator Stephen Biesty. The scene is Rome in AD 128. Join up with Marcus Cotta and his 9-year-old son Titus as they spend a festival day together in Rome. Each picture shows in extraordinary detail the everyday scenes and major monuments of the imperial city. Numerous cutaways enable the reader to look into the buildings, to see what the people are doing and how the buildings are constructed. Travel through Rome in one day and see what life was really like in ancient times. * The lavish illustrations include: a wild animal show at the Colosseum (teaming with 50,000 spectators); horse racing at the Circus Maximus; bathing at the Baths of Trajan; festival day at the Temple.
