Encyclopedia of Ancient History

New on eresources@cambridge A-Z : Encyclopedia of Ancient History

A fountain at The Pantheon Rome

The only comprehensive collection of twenty-first century scholarship available on the entire ancient Mediterranean world. Over 5,000 original entries spanning the late Bronze Age through the seventh century CE. Entries extend to all Mediterranean civilizations, including the Near East and Egypt, and represent an unprecedented level of coverage of the ancient world.

“This is an encyclopedia of Ancient History, but one which moves well beyond the traditional confines of Greek and Roman history to embrace the Ancient Near East, Bronze and Iron Age Greece, Jewish history, and Pharaonic Egypt. Too often these various areas have been treated in isolation. This is the first encyclopedia to make Ancient History in this extended sense its focus. It enables connections to be drawn across cultures and allows readers to gain an understanding of the close relationships that existed among the civilizations of the broad geographical span from western Europe to Iran, including a chronological span from the Neolithic through the eighth century CE. Our concept of history is similarly inclusive, ranging from social and cultural to political, economic, and intellectual history.” – Introduction
