The common view of the Romans is that they were only interested in watching gladiators hack one another to pieces, and in lying on couches while they stuffed large meals down their throats. But of course they were a busy and clever people, who built up a great empire to prove it, with fine cities and harbours, bath houses and roads, laws and good government. In this audiobook you can hear the stories of the great Roman emperors and the enduring legacy that they left for later generations.
Hugh Griffith makes the history of the Roman Empire inviting and accessible to upper elementary and middle school students. With his clear, slightly accented voice, Benjamin Soames provides a delivery that breathes life into ancient times. His tone is conversational as he takes us from Rome's beginning years as a republic to its later years as empire. From Julius Caesar, who toppled the republic and established himself as dictator, through five hundred years of emperors, famous and infamous alike, students become acquainted with a critical era in the civilization of the world. The contributions of the most influential emperors are covered - with connections clearly drawn to show Rome's enduring stamp on the world today.

Child-friendly overview of the Roman emperors
My sons and I enjoyed listening to this. One was 6th grade and the other one 9th. We all got a lot of good information from this. Listening to it the second time, it was funnier and more sarcastic than I remembered. Not a Horrible Histories type funny, but still not as dry as I thought. Based on the Amazon reviews, this could be a good or bad feature depending on the parental style. Still, it shies away from anything much scandalous, which is a bit of a trick with this time period. We all felt it was very highly recommended and a great narrator.
