Caroline Skeel (1872-1951) was a groundbreaking historian, particularly in the field of Welsh historical studies. In this, her first publication, originally written for the Gibson Essay Prize in 1898, and published in 1901, Skeel examines the methods employed by ancients in order to travel through the Roman Empire, the changing motivations of travellers and how increased opportunity for travel affected religious devotion. This thoroughly researched book will be of value to anyone with an interest in ancient history or ancient methods of communication.
