A uniquely visual approach to exploring the cultures of the key civilizations of ancient times.The main section of the book focuses on ancient Egypt, Mesopotamia, Rome and Greece, offering a detailed exposition of each in turn through thematic spreads depicting many aspects of their cultures. Government, society, war, religion, work, leisure, shelter, food, costume and daily life are all unveiled in vivid detail through carefully designed compositions of both coloured and monotone engravings. A second section features timelines, maps and overviews of the other key civilizations that were flourishing throughout the world at that time.

The book has over 1,000 colour and black-and-white illustrations.
