Item description for Ancient Sicily: Monuments Past and Present by G. Messineo & E. Borgia...

This new book in the popular Monuments Past and Present series explores historic sites in Sicily, illustrating important monuments and districts as they appear today, with overlays indicating how the sites are thought to have looked in ancient times. The book begins with a brief history of Sicily from its early contacts with Minoans and Myceneaens, through its division between the Greeks and Phoenicians, to the series of invasions it suffered at the hands of the Carthaginians, the Romans, and the Arabs, each of whom left their mark on the landscape.
Organized geographically, the book includes seventeen reconstructions of ancient monuments as well as additional ancient artifacts in six important locations across the island: Syracuse, Taormina, Piazza Armerina, Agrigento, Selinus, and Segesta. Travelers, students, and anyone interested in the history of the Mediterranean region will find this book an excellent resource. The book includes a concise glossary of architectural terms.

Reviews - What do customers think about Ancient Sicily: Monuments Past and Present?

Ancient Sicily: Monuments Past and Present  Jan 10, 2007
This book is invaluable when visiting ancient monuments in Sicily because so many are in pieces with very little signage, and most of that is in Italian. The flip over pages show how wonderful these sites would have been and the visitor really can appreciate all the steps in designing and building them. In many cases, stones from the sites were used to build nearby towns, so the original sites are a jumble of leftover stones for the most part which mean nothing to the average visitor - this is why this book is vital.
