Peeps at Many Lands: Ancient Rome
by James Baikie
An introduction to the ancient city of Rome, its early history, and how its geographical position helped it become the seat of the Roman Empire. Traveling to the city in A.D. 71 we witness the triumph of Vespasian and Titus as well as the games in the Colosseum and the Circus Maximus. And finally we learn that the secret to Rome's greatness is discipline, inculcated in her citizens by military training and held up as an ideal in both home and civic life.  Ages 9-12
