Product Description

More than 15 centuries after its fall, the Roman Empire remains one of the most formative influences on the history of Europe. Its physical remains dot the landscape from Scotland to Syria. Its cities are still the great metropolises of the continent. Its law and its institutions have shaped modern practice, and its ideal of a united Europe has haunted politicians ever since. This atlas traces the rise and fall of the first great multinational state in Europe. It looks at its provinces and cities, its trade and economy, its armies and frontier defences; follow its foreign wars and internecine struggles; and charts its transformation into a Christian theocracy and its fall in 476. Over 60 full colour maps. Innovative, informative, up-to-date and visually exciting. Special features and timelines. Over 80 illustrations in colour and black and white. Indispensable one-volume handbook.
