Description

From deserts to hidden corners of busy cities, quiet mountain tops to caves submerged deep underground, this book is a spectacular tour of human history. Archaeological sites tell a story spanning thousands of years, and the ones in this book range from the well-known to hidden gems, handpicked for their desirability as destinations. From the Abu Simbel twin temples in Egypt that commemorate Pharaoh Ramesses II and his queen Nefertari to the Nazca Lines in Peru that feature large geoglyphs in the desert soil, this book is a striking tour through human history. Great Sites of the Ancient World is a journey through the most remarkable archaeological sites the world has to offer. It serves as both a dazzling spectacle and travel inspiration, making it perfect for armchair travellers and world adventurers alike. Each site features stunning photographs accompanied by essential information and a lively, expert text that brings each location to life.
