Cultural history of the ancient world

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Kulturgeschichte der Antiken Welt is a series of non-fiction books published from 1977 to 2008 on primarily archaeological and cultural-historical topics from Verlag Philipp von Zabern , which consists of 118 volumes and numerous special volumes.

In terms of content, the book series covers the entire spectrum of human history from the Stone Age to the end of antiquity and its reception . In some respects, the series extends to medieval and early modern themes. The focus is on classical antiquity, but Egyptological and ancient oriental topics are also an important part of the series. The spectrum of publications ranges from scientific textbooks (such as the works of John Boardman ) to dictionaries , encyclopedias, bibliographies and non-fiction books for the wider public, to travel guides and novels .

Most of the works were written specifically for the series and published there for the first time, but translations have also been included. The first volume in the series, John Boardman's Black-Figure Vases from Athens from 1979, was a translation from English . In addition to the numbered volumes in the series, a number of special volumes were also published.
