Excavating Classical Culture
Recent Archaeological Discoveries in Greece
edited by M. Stamatopoulou and M. Yeroulanou
This volume publishes more than twenty papers on recent work in Greece from a remarkable, in some respects unique, meeting of archaeologists, which took place in Somerville College, University of Oxford, in March 2001. Recent archaeological activity in Greece has yielded a wealth of material enhancing our knowledge of classical Greece. The colloquium was the first collective presentation of these finds in the United Kingdom, offering a rare opportunity for scholars to acquaint themselves with the recent discoveries. The papers draw on first-hand material provided by prominent scholars who are currently working on archaeological sites in Greece.
