This book describes the formation of Thracian culture in South Eastern Europe and Asia Minor during the Bronze Age (the second millenium B.C.) and traces its development into one of the mightiest states of antiquity, a state which defied Philip of Macedon and Alexander the Great, only to fall to Rome and remain a province for 500 years. The early Greek historical sources are discussed, and compared with archaeological evidence and contemporary written sources. The stages of the development of the Thracian civilization are placed in the context of social and political developments which took place during the Bronze Age and the early Iron Age. The author argues that Thracian civilization developed not only in Bulgaria but extended north into Romania, along the north coast of the Black Sea across to Asia Minor, and also into Greece. The various tribes of European and Asian Thrace are described and ascribed to their original homelands. There is also a consideration of the culture of the Thracians, their settlements, forts and royal society. The book concludes with a discussion of Thracian artistic achievements and the nature of Thracian religion.
