Book Review – Chronicle of the Roman Republic

Chronicle of the Roman Republic: The Rulers of Ancient Rome from Romulus to Augustus  by Philip Matyszak

This is a very good quick reference book for those who do not want to wade through huge blocks of history text to get to the stuff you need or are interested in.

The history of the Roman Republic is made through its people and this book goes about telling roman history through it’s consuls and other notables. It has interesting side panels and information bars for explanations of roman traditions, sites and events.

It is very nicely illustrated with both drawings and photographs of people (their marble countenances)and places from around the Roman Republic. I would recommend this book for anyone with a general interest in roman history and for student use for a school project.
