Spain: An Oxford Archaeological Guide
Spain's opulent mixture of cultures and religions have left it rich with notable sites for the traveler to explore. Roger Collins presents a clear guide to over 100 major Roman, Celtiberian, Islamic, and Christian archaeological areas of interest dating from the Roman Empire to the eleventh century. From the Arab Walls of Madrid to the Roman hippodrome in Toledo, and from the palace complex of Seville to the Islamic fortress in Malaga, Spain is a thorough and convenient guide.
Arranged alphabetically, and with chronological and geographical appendices for quick and easy reference, this illustrated guide also includes essential information on forums, temples, theaters, villas, castles, and churches. An introduction surveys Spain's history from the Neolithic period to the Middle Ages, and extensive descriptions of sites help make learning about or traveling to Spain comprehensible and enjoyable.
