Ancient Rome By DK AudioBook Summary
Immerse yourself in the history of ancient Rome—from its origins as a small settlement on the Palatine Hill to its peak as an empire reigning over 90 million people, and its tumultuous decline.
Covering more than 1,000 years of history, and an empire that stretched from Scotland to Syria, Ancient Rome reveals in vivid detail all the key political, cultural, and military events that shaped the Roman Empire and explores what it was like to live in a society that laid the foundations for many aspects of the modern world.
Featuring Rome’s greatest emperors, from Augustus to Constantine, as well as profiles of generals, historians, and influential women, Ancient Rome also delves into the fascinating stories of gladiators, bakers, and enslaved people. The most iconic buildings of Rome are brought to life while the stories of ordinary citizens, soldiers, and persecuted groups from across the empire are told with the help of artefacts, and eyewitness accounts. Ancient Rome is the perfect book for anyone who is interested in this defining period of world history.
