Summary (From the publisher):

If you had a window on the afterlife, would you kill to gaze through it? How can a man armoured only in green vines capture a desert fortress? How can a 19th Century piano vituoso begin her career after she dies? If refugee Trojans built Rome, what might refugees from the fall of Rome build? McMullen gives fantastic but feasible technologies to real people, then invites us to stand back and observe.
