Editorial Reviews

Part 1 - Chapters:

THE MYCENAEANS:
There were many important civilizations in the Mediterranean region in ancient times, but the Mycenaeans were especially fortunate. Their legends became the subjects of the finest works of literature to be handed down from antiquity - Homer's Iliad and Odyssey and the dramas of the great Greek playwrights. Archaeologists have unearthed the remains of the cities of the Mycenaeans. These sources, both literary and archaeological, have allowed us to get an intimate look at this impressive culture. What we see is an age of powerful military dynasties that ruled large areas of land, conducted trade, and established industries. Their influence reached as far as Egypt & Sicily. Their legends lived on to form the cornerstone of the literature of the Western world.

ANCIENT ARABIA:
Located at the southern end of the Arabian peninsula, the countries of Yemen & Oman sit at a strategic crossroads. The Horn of Africa lies just a few miles across the southern end of the Red Sea, the Persian Gulf is off to the East, and the Arabian Sea, an arm of the Indian Ocean, gives ships easy passage to India and points east. In ancient times, this advantageous location gave the area, then known as Saba, access to wealth & power. The Sabaeans received goods from distant China & India and shipped them to the Mediterranean and beyond. They produced their own luxury goods, and their wealth enabled them to build imposing cities.
