About this title:
Synopsis:
So much of what we know of the Ancient World comes from Herodotus (c.490 BC - c.420 BC) that he will always remain the greatest of historians. But, in addition, such a large part of the entertainment value of the Ancient World comes from his enormous, omnivorous, sometimes credulous appetite for stories of distant lands and strange creatures. "Great Journeys" allows readers to travel both around the planet and back through the centuries - but also back into ideas and worlds frightening, ruthless and cruel in different ways from our own. Few reading experiences can begin to match that of engaging with writers who saw astounding things: great civilisations, walls of ice, violent and implacable jungles, deserts and mountains, multitudes of birds and flowers new to science. Reading these books is to see the world afresh, to rediscover a time when many cultures were quite strange to each other, where legends and stories were treated as facts and in which so much was still to be discovered.

About the Author:
Herodotus (c.490 BC - c.420 BC) was an Ionian traveller and storyteller. He was exiled from Helicarnassus after his involvement in an unsuccessful coup d'etat against the ruling dynasty and undertook some of the many journeys described in his Histories. He is often still known by the title, first given to him by Cicero, of the 'Father of History'.
