by Peter Connolly
The Ancient City is Peter Connolly's most ambitious, wide-ranging and beautiful project to date. The book provides a unique recreation of all aspects of life in the two greatest cities of antiquity - Athens and Rome. For the first time ever, all the evidence has been painstakingly pieced together to reconstruct the architectural wonders of these mighty civilizations in Peter Connolly's immensely detailed, stunning artwork. And by recreating their public buildings, their temples, shops and houses, the everyday lives of the citizens are revealed in glorious, or sometimes gory, detail.
