Ancients In Their Own Words: Romans

The civilization of Ancient Rome lasted almost a thousand years, extending at its peak from Britain in the north to Syria and Egypt in the Middle East. Brings to life the world of ancient Rome with inscriptions from the early days of the Republic through the last days of a crumbling empire. Includes written records carved into stone tablets, funeral stelae, bronze plaques, walls, and amphitheater steps from places as far apart as Pompeii (Italy), Cádiz (Spain), Arycanda (Turkey), and Palmyra (Syria). Features the words and deeds of politicians, soldiers, priests, gladiators, and waitresses on subjects as diverse as grief, religious practice, political beliefs, military victories, building projects, public service, and restaurant food.
