Ancient Perspectives: Maps and Their Place in Mesopotamia, Egypt, Greece, and Rome

Old views includes a colossal arc of house and time—Western Asia to North Africa and Europe from the 3rd millennium BCE to the 5th century CE—to discover mapmaking and worldviews within the historical civilizations of Mesopotamia, Egypt, Greece, and Rome. In each one society, maps served as severe fiscal, political, and private instruments, yet there has been little consistency in how and why they have been made.

Sample text

I'd been out hunting with a mob of young blokes when a roo flew out of a declivity in front of us. The dogs gave chase, but they'd only gone twenty metres when Blakie suddenly shot up in the roo's path, threw it to the ground, whipped his knee into its back and broke its neck. The young men had been falling over themselves to let him have the roo. But right now Griffo wasn't as savvy. He grabbed Blakie by the scruff of the neck and dragged him to his feet.

As the night wore on there was a lot of drunken yelling and a lot of drunken singing, the latter about as musical as the former. I returned to the single women's camp, lit a fire and unrolled my swag. Tried to get some sleep, but sleep was hard to come by in the general uproar. Where's Lincoln when you need him? I thought to myself. I hadn't heard him return from Blakie's camp. Festivities reached their nadir when somebody began to accompany a roaring chorus of 'Midnight Special' on an electric guitar that must have been tuned by Deafy Jupurulla.
