The Hidden History of Rome
Who better to scrutinise and investigate the quirkier achievements of the impressive and expansive Roman Empire than co-creator of the brilliantly accomplished question; ‘What have the Romans ever done for us’? Terry Jones is in search of an answer. Unearthing the secrets of the Roman world in his own idiosyncratic and bizarre way, he reveals how ordinary people really lived in ancient Rome.
“Jones makes history jolly” – The Sunday Telegraph
