    From the publishing house that brought you the Who Was? books comes the next big series to make history approachable, engaging, and funny!

    The Thrifty Guide to Ancient Rome
     contains information vital to the sensible time traveler:

       • Where can I find a decent hotel room in ancient Rome for under five sesterces a day? Is horse parking included?
       • What do I do if I’m attacked by barbarians?
       • What are my legal options if I’m fed to the lions at the Colosseum?
     
    All this is answered and more. There is handy advice on finding the best picnicking spots to watch Julius Caesar’s assassination at the Roman Forum in 44 BC, as well as helpful real estate tips to profit from the great Roman fire of AD 64. There are even useful recommendations on which famous historical figures to meet for lunch, and a few nifty pointers on how to avoid being poisoned, beheaded, or torn apart by an angry mob.
     
    If you had a time travel machine and could take a vacation anywhere in history, this is the only guidebook you would need!
