Some very interesting details about the earliest days of Rome, but a rather disorganized book on the whole. The author has an agenda: demonstrating that the "traditional" account of the foundation of Rome is more reliable than usually accepted by scholars in the field. He makes a good argument but it all depends on how reliable his interpretation of the archaeological data is -- and he doesn't give much of the raw data, so it's hard to guess. ( )

The author has been the director of the escavations of the northern side of the Palatine Hill for thirty years, and in this book he condensed for "normal" people the results of his findings and his reconstruction of the "First day" of Rome.

In a nutshell, he affirms that the myth of the founding of Rome has many aspects that have been confirmed by archaeological findings. ( )
