I am glad Romans left us diagrams, descriptions exactly how they did things or we end up having conspiracy nuts telling us Romans were using aliens tech or magic too just like Egyptians. So here is a good way to educate your kid or yourself out of fantasist notions read this book.
Relying heavily on visuals, the book provides children plenty to enjoy with an easy-to-follow pace. Children are certainly not the only ones who can enjoy these books though, and I purchased this one in particular for artistic and historical reference - better as just a handbook for this, since these books are detailed but not expansive past their subject matter. It might be a little humbling, but we adults can pick these up and find a comforting welcome into a new subject.
I recommend for: parents who want their child to learn a little more outside of school, artists, writers, and architecture enthusiasts. It's not very complex but it is thorough.
