Greece: An Oxford Archaeological Guide

Christopher Mee and Antony Spawforth

Oxford Archaeological Guides

  • Written by two well-known authorities on ancient Greece with extensive experience of teaching, fieldwork, and study at Greek archaeological sites
  • Tony Spawforth is a well-known presenter of television programmes in the BBC series 'Ancient Voices'
  • Extemely up to date: all sites visited by the authors in past two years
  • Firmly focused on what you actually see on site
  • Plans to almost every site, including minor sites like Tainoron or Kalydon
  • Extensive quotation of classical writers and inscriptions bring the sites back to life
  • Written not only for travellers, but also with the undergraduate textbook market in mind
  • As well as prehistory and Archaic and Classical times, includes expert coverage of the Hellenistic and Roman periods, which are archaeologically prolific but tend to be neglected in traditional guides
  • Previous titles in the Oxford Archaeological Guides series have sold well, especially The Holy Land (20,000 copies in this edition) and Rome (12,000 copies)
