So reads an inscription by an ancient Egyptian sculptor advertising his skills. Packed with inscriptions dating from 3rd millennium Mesopotamia to the Roman era, this six volume set offers an exciting way of understanding the ancient world through the words of the people of the times. Taken from ancient tomb inscriptions, ceramics, stele, parchment and buildings, some inscriptions deal with the graffiti and scrawls of common people, while others offer the edicts and dedications of kings, emperors and powerful politicians.

Each inscription is accompanied by a translation, background context, and exciting feature explaining some fascinating, little know aspect of the author, subject or culture. Rendered into modern English, the quotations give young readers an insight into the lives, customs and concerns of people who lived many thousands of years ago in societies that through these translations seem not unlike our own.

Expertly written and highly informative, the six volumes of The Ancients In Their Own Words offers insight into ancient times through the words of its peoples.
