Sometimes books are printed in small numbers for special occasions and then go out of print. If you are a top fan of the Roman Mysteries you might like to add these ‘collectibles’ to your shelf. My favourite is the Travel Guide, From Ostia to Alexandria with Flavia Gemina. Some editions have colour plates of me and my husband-illustrator Richard on some of our research trips!
Join Flavia, Jonathan, Nubia and Lupus as they explore fascinating facets of life in ancient Rome. Evocative text and vivid full-colour illustrations bring to life the themes, settings and personalities in the bestselling series. Topics covered include Flavia on the class system in Roman society, favourite myths and legends, and holidays and celebrations; Jonathan discovering the world of Roman sport and leisure and the different religions; Nubia on animals in Roman times and Lupus on childhood in Roman times, plus ancient cultures’ fascination with number and alphabet puzzles and games. Includes a timeline of key events in Roman history and a map of the Roman Empire.
This quiz book features questions about the characters, places and events occurring in books 1-6 of the Roman Mysteries. In addition, there will be questions based on the popular maps in the books, quizzes about ancient Roman food, fashion, customs, literature, music, an illustrated Aristo’s Scroll plus a mammoth general quiz. Answers supplied at the back of the book.
As well as being gripping adventures, Caroline Lawrence’s bestselling novels are packed with facts about ancient Roman life.

Hot-headed as ever, Flavia Gemina is determined to prove to her handsome tutor Aristo that she really is a detective of the highest order. At first, the mystery of the missing bread rolls seems like an easy – and rather dull – case to solve. But it stumps Flavia and her friends … until she investigates the meaning behind the strange word games that the slave Romulus likes to play.
