What was it like to live when the pyramids were being built? Or when Charlemagne was crowned Holy Roman Emperor? Or under the Qing Dynasty? This atlas brings to life the epic stories of empires from the Akkadians in 2600 BCE to the Romanov, Ottoman and British empires in the 20th century. It combines maps, reconstruction drawings and photographs of sites and artefacts to illustrate the unique traditions, innovations, art and culture of 30 great imperial powers.
