Overview

From Athens to Troy, the glories of classical Greece are an essential part of our heritage and are echoed every day in the buildings and institutions we see around us.  But who were the visitors from afar who first appreciated the riches of the archaeological past of Greece and the Greek lands; who opened up the culture and its ancient remains? From as early as 1420, a few intrepid explorers made their way to Greece and Turkey, to recover the precious relics of the Greeks’ classical past. Richard Stoneman tells their riveting stories.
