Summary
The fortifications built around Greek cities for their defence and protection are among the most impressive of ancient remains. In breadth and detail Anthony McNicoll analysed and illustrated over a score of fortified sites on the basis of personal knowledge and inspection, ranging from Ephesus and Assos on the Aegean to Dura Europus on the Euphrates, and spanning the development from the fourth-century Maussollan great circuit of Halicarnassus to the first century cross-wall at Miletus. The individual studies provide a valuable publication of some little-known material and support not only a technical and architectural history, but an explanation of what was built in broader terms
