Overview

William R. Biers wrote The Archaeology of Greece to introduce students, teachers, and lay readers to the delights of exploring the world of ancient Greece. The great popularity of the first edition testifies to his success. In his preface to the second edition, Biers points out that, while the field of Greek archaeology may seem conservative and slow-moving, it has undergone major changes, especially in regard to work on the Bronze Age.

The second edition brings information on all areas up to date, reflecting the most recent research, and it includes cross references to Perseus II, the interactive electronic data base on Archaic and Classical Greece. This edition includes new illustrations, some of recent finds, some of improved plans, and others added to enhance an explanation or to illustrate a point.

This book is a really great book to introduce one to Greek archaeology. It's one of two books I read for the advanced course I took. The other was more oriented towards art, while this one archaeology. I absolutely love this subject (so much I took the more advanced classes after the beginner ones even though I didn't need them). I've read it twice, actually. Even though it wasn't required for the beginner class I took I went ahead and bought it, then again for the other class (which it was required for). What can I say, I'm obssessed with Classical Greece! (Though, by the way, this book starts in a much earlier period and ends in the Hellenistic.)
