Gods and Goddesses in the Daily Life of Ancient Romans" is nominally a survey of Roman Mythology

Gods and Goddesses in the Daily Life of Ancient Romans" is nominally a survey of Roman Mythology. All the major Roman gods are covered as well as some information about religious festivities and non-Roman religions such as Judaism. Unfortunately, the narrative is just an excuse for the publisher, David Salariya to re-use illustrations that his company generated for other children's books on Ancient Rome. This book has wonderful illustrations by John James and Mark Bergin that were first generated for the "Inside Story" series

The daily life of the average city dweller, however, was a lot different and most often routine. The urban areas of the empire - whether it was Rome, Pompeii, Antioch, or Carthage - were magnets to many people who left smaller towns and farms seeking a better way of life. However, the unfulfilled promise of jobs forced countless people to live in the poorer parts of the city. The jobs they sought were often not there, resulting in an epidemic of homeless inhabitants. The ceiling of the atrium was open and beneath this was a rectangular pool.

This is a decent picturebook introduction to the history of ancient Rome. One very odd omission, however (spotted by my six-year old): there is no entry for the goddess Venus(!) Was, perhaps, the author unlucky in love and so bitter that he left her out? At any rate, it is kind of odd to find the Roman pantheon devoid of Love. Hmmmm. (Axton)
