Synopsis: Filling a gap in available literature, Professor Henry Matthews brings alive the ancient cities of Aegean Turkey. He passionately explores history from the Bronze Age to the Byzantine era while lucidly explaining architectural principles. He guides readers through rugged mountains and fertile river valleys to twenty-one sites, including Troy, where the walls still stand that resisted Agamemnons warriors; Miletus, the birthplace of Greek philosophy and science; Priene, whose Late Classical ruins express political and artistic ideals; Pergamon, the dramatic mountain-top metropolis; Aphrodisias, Hierapolis and Ephesus, where brilliant Roman architecture prevails and many surprises await.

About the Author: Henry Matthews, born in England and educated at Cambridge University, is an architectural historian. He has practiced architecture and taught at universities on both sides of the Atlantic. His numerous books and articles cover topics from Islamic design in Turkey to the Modern Movement in America. A passionate traveler, he has led cultural tours in several countries. His recent publication Mosques of Istanbul (Scala 2010) reveals his interest in placing buildings in their social and historical context and bringing them to life for tourists. Readers are invited to enter his website where they will find additional photographs and information as well as recent discoveries in Aegean Turkey. http://henrymatthews.com
