History in a Hurry: Romans

For ages 6-8
3 based on 1 ratings & 0 reviews on


John Farman, the genius (for want of a better word) responsible for the best-selling A VERY BLOODY HISTORY OF BRITAIN (WITHOUT THE BORING BITS), now tackles all the great periods of history - in less than 10,000 words.

History in a Hurry is so short that there just isn't room for any boring bits!

All you need to know (and a little bit less*) about the Romans.

(*Quite a lot less, actually. Ed.)
