Available for the first time in paperback, this first large-scale, sole-authored history of ancient medicine for almost 100 years uses both archaeological and written evidence to survey the development of medical ideas from early Greece to late Antiquity.

Vivian Nutton pays particular attention to the life and work of doctors in the communities, links between medicine and magic, and examines the different approaches to medicine across the ancient world.

With many texts made accessible for the first time, and providing new evidence, this broad exploration challenges usual perspectives, and proves an invaluable resource for students of both classics and the history of medicine.

Review:

'A worthy enterprise ... the result is a masterful evaluation of health and disease ... Galen would have been pleased.'  W.F Bynum, The Times Higher Education Supplement


'[A] near-masterpiece, Ancient Medicine is a huge quarry, fit for mining and exploitation by those who have the proper equipment.' - BMCR


'Vivian Nutton has written a magisterial history ... [that] has done the worlds of classical scholarship and medical history a true service' Julie Laskaris, University of Richmond, Virginia
