Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Archaeology unlocks the secrets of Greece's ancient past. Explore the ruins of Greece and Turkey, on land and under sea.

In 1870, amateur archaeologist Heinrich Schliemann discovers Hissarlik, part of Troy.

In 1939, the palace of King Nestor in the Mycenaean city of Messina is unearthed near Pylos. In 1996, artifacts from the city, burned around 1200 B.C., link the site to Homer's Odyssey.

In 1983, a Turkish diver locates the world's oldest shipwreck, which yields the world's oldest "book"—a carved wooden writing tablet with an ivory hinge.

This title brings readers into close contact with scientists working to uncover the secrets of the Ancient Greeks, whose artifacts appear at digs across Europe, Asia Minor, and northern Africa.

Ancient Greece includes an interview with underwater archaeologist Faith Hentschel, a past grantee of the National Geographic Society.

Synopsis:

The civilization of ancient Greece centered around the Aegean Sea, the area that today includes Greece and the western part of Turkey. The region has long beckoned to archaeologists, who have uncovered traces of the past on land and, most recently, under the sea. From Pompeii to Troy to Athens, scientists have worked to uncover the secrets of Greece's past. Ancient treasures were unearthed during the building of Athens' subway system, begun in 1992. And at least one historian wonders if what the ancient Greeks thought were the bones of giants might really have been the fossil bones of an extinct giant mammal-the southern mammoth..
