From the towering ziggurats of the Middle East to the mystifying lines at Nasca in Peru, from the 'rose-red city' of Peking. This book offers a guided tour of 41 of the world's most interesting places - forgotton cities, vast temples, enigmatic monuments. It reconstructs the places as they were in 'real life'. Each location is covered in its own self-contained chapter. The illustrations show an overall view of each site, often from an aerial position, scenes of the life in each place, and some of the most interesting artefacts that have been found there. In addition, the text describes the culture or civilization behind the place, tells how it was built and used, and recounts the story of its modern discovery. Illustrator: Robert Ingpen.
