Encyclopedia of the Ancient World by Shona Grimbly

Book Description

The Encyclopedia of the Ancient World is a colourful and lively examination of some of the most important civilizations that have shaped our world. Each entry concentrates on a particular civilization, or series of civilizations, and combines its history with an explanation of who the people were and how they lived. An examination of retrospective belief systems and myths is also included. Reflecting the latest developments in archaeology and biogeography, the Encyclopedia of the Ancient World explains how the ancient civilizations developed, and how they came to dominate their neighbours, how they evolved, and why they ecentually declined or died out. Each entry is a self-contained, clearly defined essay accompanied by extended boxes that highlight particular aspects of the subject. The Encyclopedia also features 400 full-colour photographs, as well as specially commissioned diagrams and reconstructions, that help to illuminate life as it was lived many centuries ago. The book concludes with an extensive time-line that places the civilizations in an historic context; a bibliography of suggested further reading; and a comprehensive index.
