Egypt, Greece, and Rome is regarded as one of the best general histories of the ancient world, having sold more than 80,000 copies in its first two editions. It is written for the general reader and the student coming to the subject for the first time and provides a reliable and highly accessible point of entry to the period. Beginning with the early Middle Eastern civilizations of Sumer, and continuing right through to the Islamic invasions and the birth of modern Europe after the collapse of the Roman empire, the book ranges beyond political history to cover art and architecture, philosophy, literature, society, and economy. A wide range of maps, illustrations, and photographs complements the text. This third edition has been extensively revised to appeal to the general reader with several chapters completely rewritten and a great deal of new material added, including a new selection of images.

Charles Freeman is a freelance academic historian who worked on his first archaeological dig, a first century AD Roman villa, in Italy as far back as 1966. Following many years of wandering in the Mediterranean, he has been leading study tours of Italy, Greece and Turkey for the past ten years. In 2005, Charles was appointed as Historical Consultant to the prestigious Blue Guides and has written introductions and sections of several of the most recent editions. He is
also author of Sites of Antiquity: Fifty Sites that Explain the Classical World (2009), a full illustrated survey that might be seen as a companion to Egypt, Greece and Rome.
