Overview

In the past 35 years our archaeological and epigraphic evidence for the history and culture of ancient Macedon has been transformed. This book brings together the leading Greek archaeologists and historians of the area in a major collaborative survey of the finds and their interpretation, many of them unpublished outside Greece. The recent, immensely significant excavations of the palace of King Philip II are published here for the first time. Major new chapters on the Macedonians' Greek language, civic life, fourth and third century BC kings and court accompany specialist surveys of the region's art and coinage and the royal palace centres of Pella and Vergina, presented here with much new evidence. This book is the essential companion to Macedon, packed with new information and bibliography which no student of the Greek world can now afford to neglect.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This is a superb and hard-hitting volume that brings together the very best archaeologists and historians of ancient Macedonia - packed with exciting new material, handsomely illustrated, as well as strong arguments and important new perspectives."
R.R.R. Smith, Lincoln Professor of Classical Archaeology and Art, Oxford University

"..the book is very much up-to-date, [...] it lays out the current state of knowledge and understanding about ancient Macedon. Both the archaeological chapters and the historical ones aim to offer a reliable basis of knowledge on which, presumably, other scholars can build their own theories. It will be especially valuable in raising the profile of Macedon in studies of the Aegean world in the Classical period. [...] production values are high. What this volume does, it does very well.'

Hugh Bowden, King's College London, Scripta Classica Israelica (Vol. 31 2012)
