The Romans were history's great men of action, making the study of Rome ideal for beginners of all ages, but especially for younger students, who are fascinated by the abundant action and drama of Roman history.

Rome is the model civilization, the mastery of which provides a foundation for all other history study. In the Memoria Press Famous Men of Rome, we have added a Glossary of People and Places, Full Color Illustrations, and maps of Rome, Italy, and the Roman Empire. (160 pages)
