The contemporary culture, language and artistic sensibilities of the west originated and were shaped by the ancient cultures that are vividly explored in this book. Dorothy Harrer, a skilful storyteller, has compiled a rich collection of insights into the cultures of Ancient India, Persia, Babylon, Mesopotamia, Egypt and Greece.
For each civilisation, she illuminates their rise and decline through pictures, biographies and poetic samplings, linking their ancient wisdom, spirituality, literature and illustrious people to our current times.
