A roller-coaster ride through rotten Ancient Rome – with sight-seeing stops at all the nasty bits!

Ten speedy comic-strip capers show you the dreadful details of this truly tyrannical era, whisking you off on a blood-soaked tour from Romulus and Remus to Caligula and Cassius. The murder of Julius Caesar! The triumph of slave Spartacus! The Great Fire of Rome! History has never been so speedy!
