The project

The project “Travelling with Demetrios of Skepsis” is a new edition of the fragments of this author. There will be an additional translation and extensive comments on each of the remaining fragments. But as the work of Demetrios of Skepsis deals mainly with description of places Demetrios has seen, the project of the new edition of his fragments will also give an important part to other description of the same places. These witnesses could come from Antiquity and the comments will give emphasis to this part. But it is also important to have comments and pictures from the present day stage of the places. So this blog should allow people from all round the world to give their comments and pictures of the places mentioned and described since Antiquity. Their contribution will help making people living in Antiquity and their thoughts closer to the occupations and activities of present day people.
