by Vivian Nutton




Available for the first time in paperback, this first large-scale, sole-authored history of ancient medicine for almost 100 years uses both archaeological and written evidence to survey the development of medical ideas from early Greece to late Antiquity.

Vivian Nutton pays particular attention to the life and work of doctors in the communities, links between medicine and magic, and examines the different approaches to medicine across the ancient world.

With many texts made accessible for the first time, and providing new evidence, this broad exploration challenges usual perspectives, and proves an invaluable resource for students of both classics and the history of medicine.

While Nutton's book has notes of a length that borders on absurdity, his book is the most comprehensive view on Ancient Medicine. Whether Hippocrates or Galen are up for discussion, Nutton has something useful to say. This book is very well-written, and serves as an excellent jumping-off point for further research into the fascinating world of ancient medicine.
