Description
Information
Ernle Bradford spent almost thirty years sailing into nearly every corner of the Mediterranean and here he tells its fascinating story. Once it was realized that the sea could be a link rather than a barrier, discovery was possible and he follows the explorations of the Egyptians, the Cretans, the Phoenicians, the Greeks and others.In this impressive account of the history of the region, Ernle Bradford weaves a wealth of detail: of flora and fauna, trade and commerce, society and religion, war and peace. The result is a compelling and rewarding portrait of an enormously vibrant region and its people.
