Here, for example, are abundant primary sources, and a guide to reading the ancient script known as Linear B. Here, too, is a rich collection of illustrations, drawings, maps, and photographs, including detailed renderings of Knossos, Akritiri, and ahost of archeological sites, showing them as they appeared originally and as they are now. Drawing on the latest interpretations of artifacts, texts, and other evidence, The Ancient Greeks takes readers inside the process of discovery, and provides a full history of the study of classical Greece,from the Middle Ages and the Renaissance right up to the present. The result is an ideal guide to one of the world's most revered cultures of the past.
