Summary
"How do ancient historians pursue their craft? From the evidence of coins, pottery shards, remains of buildings, works of art, and, above all, literary texts - all of which have survived more or less accidentally from antiquity - they fashion works of history. But how exactly do they go about reconstructing and representing the past? How should history be written?" "These and related questions are the subject of Neville Morley's engaging introduction to the theory and philosophy of history. Intended for students and teachers not only of ancient history but of historiography, the philosophy of history, and classics, his book addresses the implications of debates over methodological and theoretical issues for the practice of ancient history."--Jacket
