Synopsis

The name Spartacus is one familiar to most. He was the Thracian gladiator who rose up from slavery in 73 B.C. to defeat every Roman army sent to destroy him

Today, his struggle is widely perceived as the fight for freedom, but this hasn¹t always been the case; the ancient Romans were embarrassed by Spartacus¹s victories over them; the Greeks admired him; and others viewed his uprisings as the embodiment of cruelty.

In this fascinating and original work, Stothard retraces the journey taken by Spartacus and his army of rebels, taking us back to an ancient world which confronted similar issues to those we face today
