399pp. Illustrated. NEW - an unread copy,.Illustrated. Scarce. Dr. Mara Kalnins is a Fellow of Corpus Christi College and formerly University of Cambridge Reader in Modern English. "... A work of cultural history, tracing the movement of populations and far-reaching trading relations in Europe and beyond over more than 5000 years. It also serves as a travel guide, especially to the Baltic region where the amber originates, since the book is structured on journeys that Kalnins herself made, and it would be a helpful companion for any traveller. As such its scope is impressive, tracing the major routes of amber trade to the Greek and Roman worlds, the Black sea and even to the tomb of Tutankhamun. ..... The result is a historical map of the ancient world that radiates from the Baltic." (Notes And Queries)
