This is one of the best concise introductions to ancient Greece. Its maps, indices, colour photographs and brief but informative narrative would be sufficient for anyone wanting to get to grips with the basics of Greek history and culture. Beginning with the Minoan and Mycenaean civilisations, the authors journey through Geometric, Orientalizing and Archaic Greece, the Early Classical and Classical periods, finally to the Hellenistic era and Alexander the Great. Ancient Greek buildings, statues and vase paintings feature prominently in this guide which includes maps, timelines, indices of names, myths and gods, and a guide to major museum collections.
