Ancient history: Monuments and Documents

£8.99

Product description

If students are to "do" history, as opposed to reading it, they must learn how to engage with historical sources.

Ancient History: Monuments and Documents introduces students to the chief disciplines, methods, and sources employed in "doing" ancient history. It gives them a sense of the nature of evidence and its use in the reconstruction of the past, helping them to read a historical narrative with more critical appreciation; and it encourages them to consider the differences between their own academic experience of ancient sources - books, inscriptions, coins, and the like - and the use of these same objects within the everyday life of ancient society.

Charles W. Hedrick, Jr. writes clearly, concisely, and concretely, invoking ancient illustrations and modern parallels as appropriate.

Ancient History: Monuments and Documents by Charles W. Hedrick, Jr. Published by Blackwell 2006, 174pp. Paperback. Book condition: Good - very minor scoring across rear cover, otherwise tightly bound and clean throughout.
