Summary
"The author tells the story of the greatest natural disaster in Roman history: a fire that engulfed the city for two straight weeks in AD 64. He highlights firefighting technology of the period and examines how the city's architecture and planning contributed to the blaze. The book addresses the aftermath of the fire and includes an account of Emperor Nero's rebuilding efforts."--Provided by publisher
