Summary
"This is the first in over 50 years of the Greek and Roman civilizations' explorations through the Pillars of Herakles into the Atlantic. In this long-overdue project, Duane W. Roller chronicles a detailed account of these early pioneers and their discoveries and in doing so contributes a new chapter to the history of exploration. Discussing for the first time in detail the relevance of Iceland and the Arctic to Greco-Roman culture, and examining the impact of the Greeks and Romans themselves on the world beyond the Mediterranean, this book is essential reading for students and scholars of classical, and indeed global, history."--BOOK JACKET
