Published to accompany the exhibition at the British Museum in 2012, this beautifully illustrated book celebrates the relationship between horses and humans through the ages, revealing the immense influence of horses on human history. From the domestication of the Arabian horse circa 3500BC to the present day, this book explores how entire people and cultures have been characterized by the horse and its central role in society, in peace and war, in mythology and literature. Featured are 200 stunning images ranging from north Arabian rock drawings to European watercolours, illuminating how the horse represents the history of civilization itself.
