With fast facts, mini missions and engaging artwork, Ancient Rome in 30 Seconds is an introduction to one of the world’s greatest ancient civilizations.

Each topic is presented in a concise 30-second summary, supported by a 3-second flash soundbite and full-colour artwork. Fun, active elements for kids to make and do support the topics, encouraging them to test, explore and discover more.
