Lost Scrolls of Archimedes is a work of historical fiction set in the ancient times of Egyptian, Greek, and Roman society, and was penned by author Tom Roberts. True to the brutality and hard living of those times, the book contains explicit language usage, scenes of a sexual nature and graphic violence. The first in the Lost Artifacts saga of historical stories, this novel focuses on the brilliant and devastating ideas of the great Greek scholar, Archimedes. We meet young Marcus, a student of the great man, who intends to protect his scrolls with his very life. But when one goes missing and gives the Roman Consul Octavian a chance at building a weapon of mass destruction, Marcus must do all he can to counter the attack.
I adore ancient history and its many adaptations, and there are some really excellent educational points in this tale for readers to learn about Archimedes and his influence on physics and scientific invention. These lessons are woven into a truly compelling narrative that contains plenty of action, interpersonal drama and big adventure thrills along the way. Author Tom Roberts puts lots of effort into the creation of a realistic atmosphere in which to set the action, bringing the difficult and hard-edged lives of ancient people to life. Marcus too is a highly relatable character with a modern kind of intelligence that the audience can get behind, yet he fits his period well. Overall, Lost Scrolls of Archimedes is a true must-read for ancient history fans.”
