The Story of Ancient Rome
2nd Edition

Middle School - Early High School / Novice Low — Intermediate Mid

Overview

The Story of Ancient Rome examines 2,500 years of ancient Roman history from the earliest tribal hilltop settlements to the grandeur of the mighty Roman Empire spanning thousands of miles and completely surrounding the vast Mediterranean Sea.

I love the Early Times history series ... these books provide a wonderful connection to the culture I teach, allowing the students to understand the origins of the culture. I have taken many of my students to these countries. Thank you for creating such purposeful books.

Experience the glorious Roman Empire:

  • Glimpse the massive Colosseum in Rome that housed over 50,000 spectators, and marvel at the monumental iconic Roman arches, bridges, and expansive aqueducts that conveyed water to the city from miles away!
  • Behold the organization, discipline, and strength of the Roman army! Advanced weaponry, cunning combat strategy, and destructive siege machines combine to defend and expand an enormous empire with many enemies.
  • Feel the political intrigue and spirit of nationalism as members of the Roman Senate, Magistrates, and Tribunes develop a system of checks and balances, law, and judicial process that paved the way for modern democracy.

This comprehensive volume contains a detailed timeline and numerous full-color maps, charts, and images. Throughout the text, the reader’s attention is drawn to Latin terms and expressions that have entered the English language. Each chapter concludes with review questions, ideas for discussion, and suggestions for research and other projects.
