This volume provides a sampling of original readings drawn from the earliest civilizations or their firsthand observers from throughout the ancient Old World. It is intended to give the student a sense of how ancient peoples actually saw and thought about themselves and their world to complement the interpretations of their lifeways created by archaeologists and art historians. The particular selections included have been carefully chosen for intelligibility, readability, and topical diversity.
