Read full description of the books The Rotten Romans:This was the first Horrible Histories book I picked up as a child and it really changed things for me and helped me to get to where I am today. I re-read this as I'm taking an A-level in archaeology and I am studying the Romans, obviously I will read lots of other books on the Romans aimed at adults, but I thought this was a nice place to start.
It intrigues me about how little information there actually is on the Romans or the celts, its more about human nature and how it's changed or not changed as the case may be.
