About this map

A fold-out visitor's map (scale 1 : 4 700 000 for the whole Mediterrean Sea and 1 : 2 750 000 for the Adriatic and Aegean Seas), that measures approximately 100 × 69 cm (W × H) when unfolded. This travel map of the whole Mediterranean region, from Gibraltar to the Black Sea, is the perfect companion for any cruise to the area. Concentrating mainly on its fascinating history, and especially the days of the Greeks and the Romans, the information is recounted in various ways, ranging from a series of mini-biographies of notable people, to a list of rulers, and a Timeline. A variety of topics are discussed, such as early agriculture, trade, money, and Greek myths. Thumbnail descriptions are given for all the ports and nearby historic sites. In addition, a comprehensive gazeteer outlines the present-day attractions of the Mediterranean. The map is fully illustrated with colour photographs. Graham Speake, author of Mount Athos: Renewal in Paradise and editor of The Penguin Dictionary of Ancient History, wrote most of the text and acted as consultant for the project.
