This four-volume encyclopedia offers comprehensive coverage of aspects of daily life and culture throughout the ancient world from prehistory to the fall of the Roman Empire. Each article explores a specific topic (such as astronomy, calendars and clocks, festivals, or weapons and armor) across the entire world in ancient times. Each topic is examined as it occurred in ancient Africa, Egypt, the Middle East, Greece, Rome, Europe, Asia and the Pacific, and the Americas. This approach makes it easy to compare similarities, differences, and influences worldwide.
This multivolume set provides excellent scholarly surveys of the history of the ancient world, including Mesopotamia, Persia, Greece, and Rome. Each volume is a narrative history, arranged chronologically and geographically. Several supplementary volumes contain photographs of archaeological sites and objects, which are important primary sources for studying the ancient world.
