Description
One of Britain's leading authorities on historic architecture takes readers on a tour of mankind's greatest monuments in this companion volume to the BBC television series. Documenting his extraordinary four and a half month journey to eighty historic sites around the world, Dan Cruickshank's new book is lavishly illustrated with majestic images of international treasures like the Great Wall of China and the Parthenon in Athens, as well as American wonders such as the Statue of Liberty. Accompanying these breathtaking sights is Cruickshank's daily diary, in which he describes the challenges and joys of life on the road, shares stories of the people he meets along the way, and offers illuminating insights on some of the greatest achievements in human history.
