Item description for Studies in Ancient Technology: With 38 Figures and 7 Tables (Studies in Ancient Technology) by R. J. Forbes...

"Studies in Ancient Technology" forms a series of books, each containing a number of essays on ancient technology, covering both the preclassical and classical period and demonstrating the continuity and the divergence throughout the ages. The volumes describe certain phases of ancient technology, point out the gaps in our knowledge and try to use modern technology, philological and archaeological evidence to sketch ancient technology in such a way that it may be of some use to inform historians, archaeologists and philologists on the skill and the material world of the ancients.

Reviews - What do customers think about Studies in Ancient Technology: With 38 Figures and 7 Tables (Studies in Ancient Technology)?

Highly informative  Nov 17, 2002
This book is part of a series of nine books that look at various aspects of ancient technology. The book I acquired was from the 1965 edition, and may be different from other editions. This book has four hefty chapters: Irrigation and Drainage; Power; Land Transport and Road-Building; and The Coming of the Camel.

As with the other books in this series, this one goes into a great depth on the topics that it covers. It was originally written for an academic audience, and as such the text is rather dry (almost turgid). However, as a resource, it is nothing short of excellent. I would recommend getting a copy of this book from a later edition, but any one is bound to be highly informative.
