Developed in association with the National Maritime Museum
From the beginning of time, humankind has been fascinated with areas of the world and historical periods beyond our immediate experience. The Historical Atlas series offers a highly visual and compelling presentation of the history and development of different lands and empires throughout the world and across time. Each volume pairs lively "you are there" accounts with a superb combination of detailed maps, stunning photographs and illustrations, profiles of key figures, timelines, and much more to provide new and unique insights into the world's history.
From the sponsorship of early explorers by rival European powers to the creation of a new world empire in the Americas, the atlas is an exciting, comprehensive guide to the Great Age of Exploration.
