Human Landscapes in Classical Antiquity covers an extensive study area, taking a closer look at the relationship of the Greeks and Romans with their environment. This survey analyzes how they dealt with and constructed their surroundings in both practical and intellectual terms. It analyzes the effects of urban and agricultural development, as well as shattering some of the received histories and misconceptions of the landscape in antiquity. Included among these studies is new work on the aesthetic understanding of landscapes, the importance of hunting to the Greeks, and the Roman concern with wetlands and water resources.
