Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book which has been around for a long time, gives a wonderful and detailed description of daily life in Rome. It describes, cooking and eating, how Roman houses were heated, and all the facets of daily life for the citizens. It is a great counterbalance to the wars which tradionally formed the basis of school childrens' knowledge of Roman Life.

Much more detail than I had expected. Much reference to the original Latin. Well worth purchasing. High level remarks throughout.

Unreserved praise for the research. It's a look at the minutiae of a city: its residents, its structures (often crumbling) and its daily life. This is not a novel, it's an educational tool.
