An Introduction to the Ancient World.


DKK 190,00

The roots of ancioent history lie in the countries surrounding the Mediterranean, in particula in the cultural centres of the ancient Near East and in those of the ancient Greeks and Romans. It is those areas that, between 3500 BC and AD 500, many of the distinctive features of modern Western culture originated, Our knowledge of ancient history is partly based on what has come down to us through the ages – information that was passed on from generation to generation, from antiquity to the present day. Numerous works of classical historians, poets, orators, philosophers and scientists have been preserved because they were copied over and over again.
