Daer friends,

I am writing you all today to inquire about a world atlas that has
maps of ancient Palestine, Mesopotamia, early Greece, and Africa. Perhaps,
there is no such atlas that has all the places mentioned above, but if
anyone does know of such an atlas, please let me know privately.

Thanks Tim Dickens

(PS: for the record, I do use the _Macmillian Bible Atlas_, by Yohanan
Aharoni and Michael Avi-Yonah, Third edition.)

Near Eastern specialist and Egyptologist. . .are too aware of the
isolationism often seen in traditional classics--or more precisely in
studies of Greek civilization--with its emphasis on the events of a
relatively short period, primarily in a particular exemplar of a single
group of cultures. Studies that appear to see fifth-century B.C.E Athens as
the defining experience of all civilization puzzle those whose interest lie
in other areas of the Mediterranean antiquity, and still more those
concerned with other regions of the world.
