Overview

Ancient History is a result of the early, exciting days of archaeological exploration. Even today, George Rawlinson's text remains the only brief introduction to the entire panorama of the ancient world. It gives equal weight to each of the civilizations of the Ancient Near East and Mediterranean rather than subordinating them to the classical civilizations of Greece and Rome.

Born in Chadlington, Oxfordshire, on November 23, 1812, George Rawlinson began his long career as an ancient historian with an appointment at Exeter College in 1840. From 1861 to 1889, he held the distinguished Camden Professorship of Ancient History at Oxford. He died in 1902, his most lasting contribution to society being his translation of Herodotus.
