Another ancient world -- The ancient world from below -- What, when and where is the ancient world -- How do we discover it? -- Did Greece and Rome matter? -- Through classical eyes.
This introduction to the ancient world covers all its different cultures, from the million people crammed into Rome to the Jews and Syrians who refused to be Romanised. Jerry Toner shows what can be learnt from new approaches to ancient history, from analysing the bones of the dead in Pompeii or assessing the impact of environmental change, and considers how we can discover what it was like to live back then. He looks at every period, not just classical Athens and Republican Rome, but the Hellenistic kingdoms that followed Alexander and the Christian-dominated later Roman Empire.
