Editorial Reviews

Review

"...first-rate book...." -- BMCR

"...thoughtfully designed and written with care and attention to detail. Highly recommended." --Choice

"...this little book successfully enhances the curiosity of the reader. Even though it is meant to be a basic introduction, the book sparks debate. ....most welcome addition to the ongoing discussion." --CJ Online

Book Description

This book explores the beginnings and development of geographical ideas in Classical antiquity and demonstrates technical methods for describing landscape, topographies and ethnographies. The survey relies on a variety of sources: philosophical and scientific texts but also poems and travelogues; papyrological remains and visual monuments.

Well presented and concise insight into the geography of antiquity. My interest was primarily in the translation of the geographic concepts into their expressions as "maps" that may have been produced.

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The title is misleading as the author only covers part of classical antiquity. If you are not interested in the intellectual source of most of the innovations employed in the Roman Empire, then this is a good read.
