"Illustrated with contemporary engravings and photographs, many of them previously unpublished, the book records the life of each a staging point along the Ancient Road and, in some cases, reveals the antiquities it concealed as well as contemporary and subsequent endeavours to reconstruct the past. As this book shows, the Ancient Road has outlived many changes in world affairs, and still continues to flourish as a link between East and West despite events both past and present."--Jacket." ;
