    So I ve been reading a book on Roman triumphs by one of the best classicists writing today, Mary Beard, who holds the chair in classics at Cambridge I noted in her bio that she has a fairly entertaining blog titled A Don s Life, to which she adds something about once a week So I eagerly went there and found that she mentioned this excellent series by

    When I was teaching The Romans as a topic to my class of 9 year olds, I let them watch The Roman mysteries and they absolutely loved them It was a great Childrens BBC production, apparently the most expensive in the history of children s tv So I was interested to finally read the actual books One down, sixteen to go

    I had the privilege of meeting Caroline Lawrence about two years ago, and I went and bought this, the first of her books, at once, which is something I nearly always do after meeting an author Given that my pile of To Be Read books is never less than 50, and I have a young family, I didn t get around to reading it until yesterday, when I got a chance while on holiday W

    A book aimed at 8 13 year olds and one that has been turned into a children s series since.I will start with the positives I found The characterisation is great with a lot of diversity even outside of the main characters It shows the differences of people in Roman times which is not something you automatically think of when discussing ancient times The story feels well researched and the plot never drags

    This was a huge childhood favourite series of mine and I loved rereading these characters

    I missed these in my own childhood, but would have loved this sort of series It s a wonderful first book to a series set in Ancient Rome, always a favourite period for primary students, and involving children solving mysteries and murders.With Sherlock so popular at the moment, the detective genre should receive a boost, and the fact that this is quite instructive on life in Roman times as well as including a murder and s

    This book caused a mini up rising in the class I thought the book was a classical Hardy Boys Nancy Drew style detective novel set in the classical age with aspects of classical life generously interspersed throughout.The students however couldn t connect with the book One of the reasons for this was that the main characters were too young for the linguistic level or maturity needed to understand all the aspects of the book and fol
