Product details

Throughout history, man has sought to build empires and gain dominance. By piecing together remains of those former empires you can plot a vivid timeline of the past. South America's Inca ruins may clash aesthetically with the Spanish and Portuguese colonial architecture aroundthem, but together they paint the continent's story. This juxtaposition of old and even older is repeated in Europe, the Middle East, Asia, North America and Australia and is explored throughout the beautiful guide.
