Description
From the rise of the Mycenaean world of the sixteenth century BC, the author traces a path through the ancient Aegean to the zenith of the Hellenic state and the rise of the Roman empire, the coming of Christianity and the consequences of the first caliphate. Deeply informed, provocative and entirely fresh, this is the first and only accessible work that tells the extraordinary story of the classical world in its entirety. With great agility, Spawforth mixes literary, inscriptional and archaeological material and offers a nuanced understanding of how civilisations evolve.
