Andrea Carandini's archaeological discoveries and controversial theories about ancient Rome have made international headlines over the past few decades. In this book, he presents his most important findings and ideas, including the argument that there really was a Romulus--a first king of Rome--who founded the city in the mid-eighth century BC, making it the world's first city-state, as well as its most influential. "Rome: Day One" makes a powerful and provocative case that Rome was established in a one-day ceremony, and that Rome's first day was also Western civilization's. --Publisher.
