This new historical atlas – richly illustrated with photographs, artwork recreations and full-colour maps – explores the world’s earliest civilisations from the first farming settlements of Mesopotamia, via Egypt, Greece and Rome, to the civilisations of the Far East, Europe and America. Informatively written, and ideal for both students and the general reader, it plots the rise and fall of empires, the nature of different societies and the evolution of technology.
John Haywood is the author of a number of books, including The Penguin Historical Atlas of the Vikings and The Historical Atlas of the Celtic World.
