Million-copy best-selling creator of the "Incredible Cross-Sections" series now brings his talent to a new challenge: Ancient Rome.
"Rome in a Day" is set in 128 AD, on a festival day and follows one day in the life of a father and his 9-year-old son, Titus Cotta Maximus, as they spend a public holiday together in ancient Rome.
Spend the day with father and son as they awake and breakfast in their home; make their way down to the busy streets; follow the procession to the Temple of Jupiter; take in the game at the Colosseum; conduct some family business at the busy docks; relax at the Baths of Trajan; and watch the races at the Circus Maximus before returning home at the end of the evening. A very full day!
