5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Taste of Ancient Rome, August 26, 2002
This review is from: Vinum: The Story of Roman Wine (Hardcover)
A sumptuous introduction to wine production, distribution, and consumption in the world of ancient Rome. VINUM is beautifully illustrated and produced, and it's an easy read. Would make a really nice present for anyone who enjoys drinking wine.
But it's not only pretty and polished. Also a really good introduction for the academic reader -- student or teacher. Fleming carefully and fully documents ancient and modern sources, and he provides the reader with an excellent survey of the state of knowledge. The references point the way to further research.
Especially recommended for wine connoisseurs, teachers of high school and undergraduate survey courses, and students in those courses.
