Description
Handsomely illustrated histories in compact editions, each gathering 200 Ancient Greek and Roman artefacts. Drawn from the collections of world-leading museums, including the British Museum; the Louvre; the National Archaeological Museum, Athens; the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; and the National Roman Museum, Rome. Ancient Greece encompasses Neolithic beads, the Great Altar of Zeus and up to 31 BC; while Rome considers c.900 BC to AD 476, considering objects great and small. From an Etruscan bobbin to a Pompeiian wall painting. Mixing the tiny and significant; the decorative and practical; each object is illustrated with a brief but expert explanation of its date, context and current location. Fascinating introductions to a wide variety of objects and the ancient cultures in which they were created.
