Now back in print, with new cover, binding and many color illustrations!
This is a rich history of the Roman Empire told in a style that makes the book not only a resource for teachers but also a reader for sixth grade and older. Generously illustrated with color paintings by masters and maps depicting the era of Roman rule, the stories of the founding, the seven kings, the imperialism, the Caesars, and the decline of Rome ring through these pages of the long-reigning Roman Empire. Stories include various aspects of Roman life at different times, and stories of the Christians under Rome and the later clash between Constantine and Julian the Apostate.
Master storytelling author, Dorothy Harrer, longtime Waldorf teacher, describes with enlivening detail the rise and fall of this remarkable chapter in the history of Western Civilization. Her stories are simply wonderful and the book itself is a consummate accounting of the richness of what can be taught during the Roman History block. For anyone teaching children about this period of history, it is an indispensable resource. For the rest of us, it is wonderful reading, even for adults. For Roman scholars right down to an enthusiastic twelve year old, this is a book not to miss!
