    DescriptionCovering a wide sweep, from Graeco-Roman antiquity to the end of the Middle Ages, Peter Thonemann shows how the landscape of the Maeander valley affected the economic relationships, social structures, cultural identities and ritual behaviour of its inhabitants. Each chapter explores a particular facet of this relationship: sacred geography; markets and mobility; mental maps and conceptual boundaries; pastoral dynamics; elite behaviour and interaction; and the productive rural landscape.
