Classical Greece: Ancient Histories and Modern Archaeologies
Ian Morris, Francoise Audouze, Cyprian Broodbank
Cambridge University Press, Jun 23, 1994 - History - 244 pages
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.
