What ages would I recommend it too? – Twelve and up.

Length? – Several days read.

Characters? – None.

Setting? – Real world. Ancient History

Written approximately? – 1997.

Does the story leave questions in the readers mind? – Confused.

Any issues the author (or a more recent publisher) should cover? No.

I've been waiting to let myself read this book for months. It's just as good as I thought it would be. Favorites: Sabratha, Pergamon, Ugarit, cities of the North American deserts. The Far East section was disappointing but everything around the Mediterranean was amazing; likewise the New World. Made me want to explore and learn about the peripheral Roman Empire. Highly recommended.
This book goes thru 50 cities. The articles are about 2-4 pages long which is good if you don't have a large block of time at once. There are many beautiful pictures in it.
