Classical Greece: Ancient Histories and Modern Archaeologies (New Directions in Archaeology)

by

Classical Greece: Ancient Histories and Modern Archaeologies (New Directions in Archaeology) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The archaeology of classical Greece developed in the shadow of Greek historical scholarship. Many modern developments in archaeology have been neglected, and classical archaeology has become something of a backwater. The contributors to this book review the history of the field and aim to demonstrate that modern archaeological approaches can contribute to a richer understanding of Greek society. They insist that this complex, literate and highly unusual society poses important questions for archaeologists of other regions.

Synopsis:

A reassessment of the archaeology of classical Greece, using modern archaeological approaches to provide a richer understanding of Greek society.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 201-238) and index.
