How to Win a Roman Chariot Race: Lives, Legends and Treasures from the Ancient World

by Jane Hood
£8.99   paperback  Icon Books Ltd (2015)

How to Win a Roman Chariot Race: Lives, Legends and Treasures from the Ancient World by Jane Hood Who first thought of atoms? How much can you learn about archaeology from an oil lamp? Who came up with the theory of the ‘wandering womb’?
 
Oxford Classicist Jane Hood delves into the history, culture, literature, mythology and philosophy of ancient Greece, Rome and Egypt, using her expert eye to unearth unexpected gems, glittering fragments and quotable nuggets from a lost world.
 
From ancient cosmetics to the earliest known computer, from the deciphering of ancient languages to the amazing things the Romans did with concrete, this is the essential miscellany for all curious minds, whether you learned the Classics at school or not.
