Greek and Roman Technology

£14.99

Product description

The book is in fine condition, with blue boards and gilt titles; the jacket has some light general surface marks. The technological exploits of the Greeks and Romans are remarkable for their time, from the inventions of Archimedes in the third century BC to the vast road and aqueduct systems devised by the Roman general Agrippa at the end of the first century BC, the output is astonishing. In the first part of the book Professor White deals more generally with methods of investigation, transmission of technical processes and technical resources of the Classical world, and in the second part he analyses the technological developments in the spheres of building, civil engineering, mining and metallurgy, food and agriculture, land and sea transport, and hydraulic engineering. A large number of illustrations closely complement the text. The book will interest the general reader as well as scholars and students.
