Product description

When you’re teaching your pupils all about the Romans, I bet you never tell them how REALLY ROTTEN they were! In their enormous Empire, the ruthless Romans learned all about bossing people about… while inventing tons of terrible tortures for people who didn’t do what they said! So grab this book to read all about their beastly battles, gruesome gods and marvellous myths. And if you’re feeling really brave, you can also find out…

  • What Roman soldiers wore under their kilts
  • Why rich Romans needed a vomitorium
  • How their deadly doctors were more likely to kill you than cure you
  • How to tell the future using a dead chicken

It’s the real story of the rotten Romans… for those who can stomach it! Now all you need to do is share it with your class!
