Product description

This is an illustrated survey of the development of European society from the very earliest times of human population to the collapse of the Roman Empire. It is based on a new concept which examines the changing landscape of Europe and the way in which man has responded and adapted to it over the millennia. Each chapter focuses on the principal periods and areas of innovation and culture, such as the Minoean and Mycenean civilizations. This unique study should benefit those interested in the early history, art and archaeology of Europe, and the changing face of European landscape and ecology.
