Kourion: The Search for a Lost Roman City

by David Soren, Jamie James

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
With co-author James (a professional writer), Soren (University of Arizona) describes excavations at Kourion from their inception. He defends his new date (A.D. 365) for the destruction of the city, proving that Kourion was among the earliest Christian communities. The rich remains of the town provide fascinating insights into the transition from a pagan to a Christian world. The authors' chatty style gives the nonspecialist unique understanding of the problems, methods, and reasoning of a working archaeologist. The final chapters describing Kourion's history and providing a ``Kourion Baedeker'' are interesting and useful for anyone visiting the site. BOMC selection. James S. Ruebel, Iowa State Univ., Ames
