From the 8th century BC to the 15th century AD, the Roman civilization endures as one of the most powerful, iconic and long-lasting empires the world has ever seen.
The Romans’ contributions to governance, art, science, technology and social structure were incredibly advanced for their time and helped to form the basis of the world we live in today. With awe-inspiring feats of architectural engineering surviving into the 21st century all over the Western world and a monumental influence on almost every aspect of our lives, the classic question “What have the Romans ever done for us?” has an almost inexhaustible set of answers!
The sophisticated and enlightened empire of Rome has been expertly recreated with these wonderful stone resin pieces, which have been intricately designed and sculpted by the master chess craftsmen at Berkeley Chess. Finished with a deep russet brown and rich palisander cream colouring, they will look fantastic displayed in any home.
