A History of Roman Art (Enhanced Edition) is a lavishly-illustrated survey of the art of Rome and the Roman Empire from the time of Romulus to the death of Constantine, presented in its historical, political, and social context.

This fully illustrated resource is designed for teachers of grades K–12 and includes a discussion of the relevance of Rome to the modern world, a short historical overview, and descriptions of forty-five works of art from the Museum's collection of Roman art. Lesson plans, classroom activities, maps, bibliographies, and a glossary are also included.
