Book of the Week (Week 10 Nov 7th)
SPQR by Mary Beard
By 63BC the city of Rome was a sprawling metropolis of more than a million people. So how did this massive city—the seat of power for an empire that stretched from Spain to Syria—develop from what was once an insignificant village in central Italy? SPQR is an entertaining journey through the Roman world bringing the very distant past to life.
A thoroughly enjoyable and informative read.
