A fitting testament to the life and work of the late Colin McEvedy, “Cities Of The Classical World” will change the way we view ancient settlements forever. There are over 120 entries, including ones for Athens, Corinth, Lyon and Colchester. Key to this project is the detailed scale map provided of each city. All of these are drawn to the same scale to make comparisons easier. The book should make for fascinating reading, especially for those of you who enjoyed McEvedy’s fantastic Historical Atlases for Penguin.
