Children's Book. Life in Roman times from the wild reaches of Hadrian's Wall on the Scottish border, to Rome and its navel stone, the centre of its empire. A day at the races, chariots racing around the Circus Maximus, animal sacrifices to the gods at a religious festival in the shadow of Pompeii. A marching army of centurions leaving for a mission from the safety of the fort. The double-page illustrations are pencil drawn and coloured digitally.
