Summary
Truth or Busted's Romans title explores popular myths and legends about one of history's most fascinating periods in a tongue-in-cheek, humorous way that kids will find unputdownable! Alongside features such as 'Rampaging Romans' in which we learn about some of the Romans' greatest conquests, Truth or Busted statements such as 'Gladiators trained on a diet of raw meat' or 'The Romans celebrated Valentine's Day with goat skin whips' are explored. We look at where the idea came from, whether it has any basis in truth, or whether they can be consigned to folklore. Finally, each statement is given a TRUTH or BUSTED evaluation! A must for anyone interested in the Romans, or studying history at school!
