Rome: A Fold-Out History of the Ancient Civilization

Rome: A Fold-Out History of the Ancient Civilization Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Experience Rome in all its glory through this entertaining and informative 3-D replica of the humming city center of ancient civilization. Standing over a foot tall and more than four feet long, Rome easily unfolds on a tabletop to depict nearly every aspect of Roman life in a series of dramatic and detailed scenes.

Its all here, including the forum with its temples, senate house, and courts of law; the colosseum where gladiators fight for their lives and crowds cheer and jeer them; and the hustle and bustle of the street, including apartments and shops, merchants plying their wares, jugglers and acrobats entertaining the crowd, and two-horse chariots racing over newly-built Roman roads.

The book is laid out accordion-style, with six panels on the front folding out into full-color scenes. On the back of each panel, lively, informative text describes the functions of the buildings, the rules of the colosseum, the life of a gladiator, the class structure of Roman society, and much more. The book also includes a complete time line of the important events in the history of ancient Rome.

Synopsis:

Featuring a timeline of the important events in the history of ancient Rome, this fold-out reveals the city in all its glory through an entertaining and informative 3-D replica of the humming city center of ancient civilization.
