World Heritage: Archaeological Sites and Urban Centres
First volume of three that Skira and UNESCO are launching to illustrate and describe world heritage places. This volume, devoted specifically to archaeological areas and urban centres, focuses on forty-six emblematic instances of diverse geographic, cultural, and historic sites, distant in time and space, but presented together in a single, clear, and fascinating collection. With this instrument for learning and understanding, and through a particularly rich array of images, places of all sorts, distant in time and space, can be found together in a single, clear, and fascinating collection devoted to the complex paths of human history and culture: a true heritage of every nation and every individual.
