Product Description

When your teachers drone on about the Romans, I bet they don’t tell you how REALLY ROTTEN they were! In their enormous Empire, the ruthless Romans learned all about bossing people about… while inventing tons of terrible tortures for people who didn’t do what they said! So grab this book to read all about their beastly battles, gruesome gods and marvellous myths. And if you’re feeling really brave, you can also find out…
  • What Roman soldiers wore under their kilts
  • Why rich Romans needed a vomitorium
  • How their deadly doctors were more likely to kill you than cure you
  • How to tell the future using a dead chicken

It’s the real story of the rotten Romans… for those who can stomach it!

    Terry Deary has made a brilliant, educational set of books! They teach you all about how the people of the past live! I would recommend an age range of 8-12 for this book
