From Alexandria to York, this unique illustrated guide allows us to see the great centres of classical civilization afresh.

The key feature of Cities of the Classical World is 120 specially drawn maps tracing each city's thoroughfares and defences, monuments and places of worship. Every map is to the same scale, allowing readers for the first time to appreciate visually the relative sizes of Babylon and Paris, London and Constantinople. There is also a clear, incisive commentary on each city's development, strategic importance, rulers and ordinary inhabitants.

This compelling and elegant atlas opens a new window on to the ancient world, and will transform the way we see it.
