Life in ancient Rome may sound like fun, with the glorious sunny weather and entertainment for the masses. But in award-winning author Chae Strathie’s book, developed in consultation with experts from the British Museum, you’ll discover what life was really like for kids in ancient Rome. From washing clothes in wee to snacking on dormice . . . and even fighting in gladiatorial combat! Maybe modern life’s not so bad after all…

A funny and accessible introduction to ancient Rome, this is a must-see event for kids with a passion for horrible history!
