Ranging from the Egyptians to the late Roman Empire, Ancient Peoples In Their Own Words celebrates the excitement and importance of historical primary sources in an accessible way that will appeal to general readers.

Presenting numerous ancient inscriptions from tombs, ceramics and buildings, accompanied by translations and text putting the work into context, this book explains the significance of these works both in the ancient world and for today. Besides famous cases such as the Egyptian Rosetta Stone and Tutankhamun's Tomb as well as lesser known cases such as the Decree of Themistocles or examples or Roman graffiti, Ancient Peoples In Their Own Words also includes examples from classical Greece, Rome, Bible texts, Persia, Minoan and Mycenean dynasties, as well as a couple of mysterious, undeciphered cases.

Illustrated throughout with more than 300 colour and black & white photographs, maps and artworks, Ancient Peoples In Their Own Words is an exciting, expertly written, highly informative and innovative insight to the history of the classical world.
