Title: Rhodes in Ancient Times
Description: Oxford, Archeopress. 2005, Re-issue. Softcover. Cecil Torrs two 19th-century studies of Rhodes, in the Greek Dodecanese, off the coast of Asia Minor, were the first and most authoritative English guides to the islands multi-layered history. Although more than a hundred years have passed since publication, the reclusive scholars "Rhodes in Ancient Times" and "Rhodes in Modern Times" remain firmly embedded in related bibliographies. Impeccably qualified Harrow (Arthur Evans was a class-mate), Trinity Cambridge, and Inner Temple barrister of formidable reputation Cecil Torr had the true antiquarians obsession for factual presentation and detailed analyses of primary sources. First published in 1885, "Rhodes in Ancient Times" is an historical and cultural guide to one of the most influential and powerful maritime states in the Mediterranean. Torrs scholarly curiosity leads him to explore the islands history, culture, myths and legends, arts, and contribution to learning in the centuries before Christ. Naturally, the celebrated Colossus is not overlooked!. New Book from Publisher.
