European travellers in the Near East, subject to a shared allure' have left us a legacy of absorbing insights into this region which has forever been, for Europe, 'so near but yet so far'. Men - and women too - with an appetite for adventure, those in search of 'eastern' treasure, scientists, early anthropologists and those seeking no more than to escape the forms and norms of Europe, so often found themselves impelled to record their doings and what they learned, or else they were writers in the first place. This latest ASTENE volume brings together studies of some of the most vivid and memorable of the pioneers of Near Eastern travel, from the Cicero brothers in the first century AD, to Gertrude Bell (1868-1926)
