About the author

Charles Freeman is a freelance academic historian who worked on his first archaeological dig, a first century AD Roman villa, in Italy as far back as 1966. Following many years of wandering in the Mediterranean, he has been leading study tours of Italy, Greece and Turkey for the past ten years. In 2005, Charles was appointed as Historical Consultant to the prestigious Blue Guides and has written introductions and sections of several of the most recent editions. He is
also author of Sites of Antiquity: Fifty Sites that Explain the Classical World (2009), a full illustrated survey that might be seen as a companion to Egypt, Greece and Rome.


Regarded as one of the best general histories of the ancient world, it is written for the general reader and the student coming to the subject for the first time and provides a reliable and highly accessible point of entry to the period. The 3rd edition has been extensively revised with several chapters rewritten and a wealth of new material added.
