Description

Nice atlas map showing the evolution of the Holy Land from "Before the Conquest" (1451 BC) to the Destruction of Jerusalem (A.D. 70). This map was originally published by William Smith and George Grove in Dr William Smith's Ancient Atlas.

The map shows the development of the Holy Land in eight parts, showing periods of time such as when it was ruled by the Twelve Tribes and its division or unification under Roman authorities.

Classical interest reached a zenith in the 19th century, and maps such as these were often produced to tell of the historical development of the classical world, much like a video today shows changing borders in recent history.
