The excellent combination of high-quality colour photographs, captions and text in this book encourages readers to study each photo carefully and identify clues about Roman times. The reconstructed photographs bring the history of the Romans vividly to life, explaining the settlement of Romans in Britain and pinpointing specific topics. Subjects covered include the military and lives of the soldiers, and the everyday lives of Roman citizens, including information on houses, crafts, childhood, slaves, fashion, food, feasts and Roman baths. Includes notes on the photographs, to help with classroom discussions.
