Travel in the Ancient WorldOurth and sixth centuries Rich in anecdote and colorful detail it now returns to print in paperback with a new preface by the autho. Read this while I was on summer vacation A surprisingly relaxing read given the complicated topic that the book has to cover The writer makes good points around travel during ancient times which are fairly simply put for the average reader while presenting a bunch of new info as well In all a fun book learned a whole lot about Mediterranean civilizations and I really didn't get lost in the vast amount of information because the writer does a good job separating them according to era and culture The only drawback I found was during the end of the book the eastern roman Byzantine era is covered a bit loosely and that made it for me at least tiring to read But still I would recommend it
