Product description


"Magnificent... The book is studded with astonishing facts" (Stuart Kelly Scotland on Sunday)

"The Empire Stops Here is not only a history. It is also an engaging modern travelogue...an unexpectedly universal legacy of the empire" (Mary Beard Financial Times)

"Philip Parker is the perfect combination of compelling narrative historian and observant travel writer. This is one of the liveliest works of ancient history I've ever read" (A.N. Wilson)

"Intriguing...with this extraordinary book, [Parker] has raised a monument all of his own" (Tom Holland Guardian)

"A blend of travelogue, classical history and archaeology. His quest through the imperial badlands of Europe, the Middle East and North Africa succeeds in throwing fresh light onto the story of Rome and its often lunatic fringes, while offering classically minded travellers a few fresh ideas for routes and discoveries of their own" (Sunday Times)

Book Description

A magnificent, groundbreaking mixture of travel and history, about the full extent of the Roman Empire - where it reached, and what is left.
