What's Inside?

Published 16th June 2022


As Julius Caesar lay dying on the floor of the Theatre of Pompey, change was in the air. Everyone knew that something was about to happen, but no one could have predicted just what set of events had been put in motion.
It would take 27 years of civil war before Octavian would become known as Augustus in 27 BCE – the year that is now heralded as the birth of the Roman Empire. The first emperor would create the blueprint for a realm that would live on for more than 1,000 years.
Inside the Book of the Roman Empire, you’ll meet rulers and icons from the nefarious Nero to Christian Constantine, as well as come face to face with the vengeful gods of the Roman pantheon. Head to the front lines with the ruthless Roman army, and find out how people really lived in the Mediterranean 2,000 years ago.
Once you’ve discovered what made this mighty empire tick, you’ll finally find out just what it was that made Antiquity’s most famous state fall from grace and how it still lives on today.
