Based on the studies of 75 distinguished historians, this five-volume series presents an engaging, panoramic chronicle on the study of women that extends from antiquity to the present day. This inaugural volume offers fresh insight into more than 20 centuries of Greek and Roman history and encompasses a landscape that streches from the North Sea to the Mediterranean, and from the Pillars of Hercules to the banks of the Indus. The authors draw upon a wide range of sources including gravestones, floor plans, papyrus rolls, vase paintings, and literary works to illustrate how representations of women evolved during this age.
