Every place has a history of stories, though few places have an ancient past so heavily documented as the European, Asian, and African stretches of Greek and Roman civilization. A Guide to the Ancient World provides the stories -- from both literature and history -- of nearly 900 such places. Includes a bibliography of ancient writers mentioned in the text and a bibliography of contemporary works on ancient history. It is an indispensable source, not only for those interested in classical literature and history, but also for travelers through Europe, North Africa, and Asia Minor.
