Summary

Now in a completely revised edition, this bestselling historical atlas has long been established as one of the most clear and comprehensive guides to the evolution of ancient culture. In a chronological series of maps and accompanying text it traces the movements of races in Europe, the Mediterranean area and the Near East from 50,000 BC to the fourth century AD, including Mesopotamians, Egyptians, Indians, Greeks, Celts and Romans, among many other peoples. This is a companion volume to The New Penguin Atlas of Medieval History, The Penguin Atlas of Modern History (to 1815) and The New Penguin Atlas of Recent History.
