This sourcebook uniquely gathers a wide range of texts that illustrate the physical structures of the city, the rhythms of its daily life and the interaction between topography, monuments and the people from Rome's earliest days, through its imperial heyday until its transformation into the Western Christian capital.

The chapters examined within this comprehensive introduction include:

  • the early and republican city
  • the emperor
  • art and architecture
  • leisure, life and death
  • religion and late antiquity.

Ancient City of Rome is designed to be directly relevant to those studying Roman civilization, or the city of Rome, at school or university level.
