The Birth of Classical Europe PDF ePub eBook

The Birth of Classical Europe free pdf This comprehensive, readable survey of the Classical past is ambitious in scope: it ranges from the Aegean world of the second millenium BC to Augustine's City of God . More than that, it considers not only how the ancient world is remembered today but also how the Greeks and Romans perceived and felt the influence of their own past. Myths, history and sacred and secular sites denoted a complex engagement with what had gone before, and many key individuals were driven by a personal or political need to recreate it in some form. The book includes plentiful maps and illustrations, and a notable feature are the text boxes that focus on a particular person, place or idea from antiquity that has had special resonance more recently, such as Boudicca and the Athenian Acropolis.
