Overview

The events and personalities of ancient Rome spring to life in this history, from its founding in 753 B.C. to the death of the philosopher-emperor Marcus Aurelius in A.D. 180. Paul A. Zoch presents, in contemporary language, the history of Rome and the stories of its protagonists - such as Romulus and Remus, Horatius, and Nero - which are so often omitted from more specialized studies.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
The Cooper site, discovered in 1922 in northwestern Oklahoma, is one of the largest bison kill sites in the southern plains. It has yielded major contributions to what is known about Paleoindian people at the end of the last ice age. This book outlines the history of the Cooper site, its discovery, and its excavation, and discusses what bones and projectile points reveal about bison herd demographics, butchering techniques, and hunting rituals. Includes b&w photos. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
