ANCIENT ROMANS

A collection of snippets of information that offer an overview of ancient Rome, from its legendary founding by Romulus and Remus to the overrunning of the Empire by Goths, Huns, and Vandals. Included is information about the emperors, religion, recreation, warfare, technology, and styles of the times; timelines give events occurring elsewhere in the world. The series' title, At a Glance, is somewhat inaccurate since the tiny pictures and small typeface require more than a casual glance. The maps are good, and the text is concise, but there is little in these pages that isn't covered in a dozen other books.
