Archaeology of Ancient Greece (Cambridge World Archaeology), The
Professor James Whitley
Paperback. Pub Date: 2001 Pages: 260 Publisher: Camidge. University Press The Archaeology of Ancient Greece. first published in 2001. Provides a synthesis of research on the Material Culture of Greece in the Archaic is and Classical periods (1000-300 BC ). The rich and diverse material culture of ancient Greece has always provoked admiration and even wonder. but it is seldom analysed as a key to our understanding of Greek civilisation. Dr Whitley shows how the material evidence can be used to address central historical questions for which literary evidence is often insufficient. He also situates Greek art within the oader field of Greek material culture. providing an historically more accurate perspective on both. This is a significant contribution to the integration of archaeological and art historical evidence.
