Rome wasn’t built in a day?
Ancient Rome is back on the map. The success of TV shows like Mary Beard's Meet the Romans has helped viewers rediscover the city and illuminated the streets of Rome in the public's imagination.
Cambridge Journals publishes a number of leading Classics Journals which bring new research and findings to an ever widening audience.
Since 2011 Cambridge has published the Papers of the British School at Rome (PBSR), a leading journal devoted to research about Italy and Rome from a wide range of disciplines.
The 2011 Papers cover image featured a section of the city from a 1570 print from the hand coloured engraving by Pirro Ligorio. Cambridge has taken the full scale image and dismantled Ancient Rome for you to rebuild it – as an online jigsaw puzzle.
See how quickly you can rebuild Rome with the PBSR online jigsaw at http://bit.ly/JI671R hosted by jigsawplanet.com.
Complete the puzzle and send a screenshot of your completed puzzle with time to firstname.lastname@example.org. The quickest time will be awarded a £50 Cambridge University Press books voucher, and the top five places will each be awarded a paperback copy of The City in the Roman West, c.250 BC to c.AD 250.
The competition closes on 30th June 2012.
Cambridge has one of the most recognisable Classics lists in the world, publishing in the area since its foundation in the 16th century. Click here for the full catalogue.
