The Great Trade Routes by Philip Parker
The team Great Trade Routes coverat Conway would like to extend our congratulations to Philip Parker, who won a Certificate of Merit for The Great Trade Routes at the Mountbatten Media Awards last week. The annual awards are hosted by the Maritime Foundation and celebrates contributions to creating public awareness of maritime matters..
Philip Parker was awarded a Certificate of Merit “for compiling an authoritative, original and informative publication to explain how trade from the earliest prehistoric times to the present has influenced the emergence of civilisations. Each epoch is described, and the main routes sustaining the movement of traded goods are covered, in six informative chapters written by eminent historians. The book is beautifully illustrated and edited, and significantly enriched with clear diagrams. This is a magnificent book in its own right, but also an invaluable source of information on an endeavour which underpins so much of world history.”
