For the book by Edward Said, see Orientalism (book). For the discipline that studies the Orient, see Oriental studies. Unknown Venetian artist, The Reception of the Ambassadors in Damascus, , Louvre. The deer with antlers in the foreground is not known ever to have existed in the wild in Syria. In art history, literature and cultural.

As mentioned in the overall series title, this book is, like the others following it, set in the period of ancient Rome during the first century of the new millennium 15 AD. Following the reign of Agrippina the Younger, it charts this period of Roman history well, as it really gets a true feel for the time and the period back then.

WE are fond of regarding ourselves as the heirs of Rome, and we like to think that the Latin genius, after having absorbed the genius of Greece, held an intellectual and moral supremacy in the ancient world similar to the one Europe now maintains, and that the culture of the peoples that lived under the authority of the Cæsars was stamped.

It was not uncommon for the ancient Romans to travel long distances all across Europe. Actually during the Roman Empire, Rome had an incredible road network which extended from northern England all the way to southern Egypt.
