Journeying through Southern France in the first years of the 20th century, Theodore Andrea Cook discovers a landscape where the presence of Phoenicians, Greeks and Romans is still evident in the Mediterranean's surviving architecture. In Arles, Nimes, Orange and Frejus, he witnesses the wonders of Roman arenas, temples and monuments. At the imposing aqueduct of the Pont du Gard he sees the genius of Roman engineering.
