  • From the Inside Flap: (back cover)
    This lively and informative guide explores the astonishing variety of places where human beings have left their markâ€"places that can still be visited and relished today. Each entry outlines the history of an outstanding site, with details on its construction andâ€"where relevantâ€"the architect or engineer who created it. Written and researched by an international team of historians and journalists, this comprehensive study spans the whole of human history, from the cradle of the human race to modern times.

    (front flap)
    1001 Historic Sites You Must See Before You Die is a comprehensive and sumptuous visual guide, and a one-stop compendium of the historically important must-see sites around the world. Join general editor Richard Cavendish and his international team of historians and journalists in an amazing virtual tour of the historically most significant sites you should see in your lifetime. From UNESCO heritage sites that preserve the wonders of the ancient world, such as the Great Wall of China and the pyramids of Egypt, to memorials that commemorate significant moments in the twentieth century, and from the Sterkfontein Caves near Johannesburg in South Africaâ€"the “cradle of the human raceâ€?â€"to Checkpoint Charlie, the sites featured in this book invariably fascinate and astound their visitors.

    Featuring more than 800 color photographs, 1001 Historic Sites You Must See Before You Die is both beautiful to look at and fascinating to read. You will find many of the great engineering works of the past and present â€"viaducts, bridges, shipsâ€"described within these pages, together with places of worship, such as the Wailing Wall, Jerusalem, and Orvieto Cathedral, Italy. Just as fascinating are key seats of power, from Versailles to the White House, and the world’s major battlefields, from Gettysburg to the Somme. Organized geographically, descriptions of world-famous structures stand beside those of forgotten fields that bear the imprint of historical events. The result is a collection that is enormous in scope and surprising in its variety.

    Open this stunning and informative book and let it become your essential visual guide to the most inspiring sites around the world.
