Keith Hopkins, Mary Beard
Award winning classicist, Mary Beard with Keith Hopkins, tell the story of Rome's greatest arena
Brilliant ... arguably the best so far in Profile's excellent Wonders of the World series ... it brings the Colosseum to life in all its gory splendour.
A work of scholarship written with the general reader in mind ... a pleasure to read.
What the authors have given us in the proverbial multum in parvo
Revels in the accretions of detail and myth ... first-class scholarship and an engagingly demotic style
Stirring stuff! This is a welcome and well-written book ... it reassesses myths, politely debunks many misconceptions about what we know- and what we don't know - to put the fabulous monument in context from its founding to the present.
