One of the masterpieces of classical literature, The Histories describes how a small and quarrelsome band of Greek city states united to repel the might of the Persian empire. But while this epic struggle forms the core of his work, Herodotus' natural curiosity frequently gives rise to colourful digressions - a description of the natural wonders of Egypt; an account of European lake-dwellers; and far-fetched accounts of dog-headed men and gold-digging ants. With its kaleidoscopic blend of fact and legend, 'The Histories' offers a compelling Greek view of the world in the fifth century BC.

This celebrated translation of 'The Histories' has been extensively revised and includes an updated bibliography, chronology, glossary and additional notes.
