Product Description

The Eastern Mediterranean in the Age of Ramesses II offers a transnational perspective on the age of King Ramesses II of Egypt during the centuries of 1500 to 1200 BC.

In this volume, Marc van de Mieroop shows how powerful states - stretching from western Iran to Greece and from Turkey to Sudan - jointly shaped the history, society, and culture of this region through both peaceful and military means. It offers a straightforward narrative, current research, and rich illustrations. This book also utilizes historical data from ancient Egyptians, Babylonians, Hittites, Mycenaeans, Canaanites, and others. It considers all members of these ancient societies, from commoners to royalty - exploring everything from people's eating habits to royal negotiations over diplomatic marriages.
