Technology in the Ancient World based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
This book is 30 years old, which, given the topic should not matter. The writing style, however, was stilted in 1970. It may be correct, but it is distracting. The treatment of the topic is interesting at a very high level and fairly comprehensive, although it is almost entirely focused on the 'civilized world' - meaning Europe and the Near East. Lots of pictures and illustrations. Worth reading for those with interest in things ancient. The general reader would probably find it slow.
