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.

Industry Reviews

"As a cross section of current approaches to the classical past, this stimulating book belongs in undergraduate as well as graduate libraries." S. Langdon, Choice "The scholarship throughout is impressive; the bibliography alone is worth the price of the book." Rhys F. Townsend, Archaeological News
