Odysseus Unbound: The Search for Homer's Ithaca by Robert Bittlestone and James Diggle and John Underhill
Odysseus Unbound: The Search for Homer's Ithaca

Helena, July 3, 2006

This book pulls you in like Tolkien or LeGuin but it's actually an historical mystery, not a fantasy. By the time you're done you know more about ancient geography, Linear B, seismology, today's Greek islands and Odysseus' pigfarm than you ever dreamed. You also really understand those tricky final scenes of The Odyssey. Amazing use and reproduction of all kinds of great graphics, too. The only question left unanswered is, "Was Homer really blind?"
