Overview

The Romans, more than any other ancient civilization, helped form the modern world. Roman magistrates drew up the laws and judicial system that govern most legal practice today. Roman engineers built the massive European road system that in great part still underlies the modern network. Romans perfected hot and cold running water, created the Western calendar, gave us high-rise apartment blocks, concrete for building, and urbanization.

Historical Atlas of Ancient Rome traces the historical, cultural, and political development of the Roman state from its archaic beginnings, through the age of monarchy and republic to its imperial grandeur, and eventual collapse. This atlas gives insight into the unique qualities of Roman government that allowed a small city-state on the banks of the Tiber to become the ancient western world's greatest empire. It covers all aspects of ancient Roman history and culture, with an engaging text, specially created maps, and full-color photographs and illustrations.
