First words
The Latin language, lingua Latína, was the language of the Latíní, the inhabitants of Latium, a region of central Italy, including the city of Rome (Róma), which according to tradition had been founded by Rómulus in 753 B.C. In the following centuries the dominion of Rome, imperium Rómánum, spread over the whole of Italy, and from there over the Western and Eastern Mediterranean. By the 2nd century A.D. the Roman emperor ruled most of Europe, North Africa, and the Near and Middle East. In the Western European provinces, Hispánia, Gallia, Britannia, Germánia (Southern Germany), and in the Balkans, e.g. in Dácia (Romania), the Latin language spread rapidly. In Greece and in the Eastern provinces Greek maintained its dominant position, so that the ancients had two world languages, Greek and Latin. [from the "Introduction"]
In the first chapter we take you almost 2000 years back into the past, to the time when the Roman Empire was at the height of its power, extending from the Atlantic Ocean to the Caspian Sea and from Scotland to the Sahara. We give you a few geographical facts as background for the sketches from life in ancient Rome which follow. [from the "Instructions" for chapter 1]
