Summary
  • This useful companion to classical history reveals the ancient world - from Scotland to India and from Spain to the Black Sea - through the numerous sites of its history and legends. Covering nations, provinces, cities, towns, rivers, seas, straits, mountains, plains, and battle sites, Michael Grant describes about 900 historically significant places in Europe, Asia and Africa
  • Each location is provided an entry that includes an essay on the historical or mythological events associated with the site, along with references to the classical writers from whom we draw our knowledge, such as Xenophone, Herodotus, Homer, Josephus, and Julius Caesar. Entries include modern place names, archaeological information, and precise geographical location. A reference book for readers of classical literature and history and useful background reading for travellers - whether actual or armchair - Guide to the Ancient World includes 16 maps that locate every entry in the book
