Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Long-listed for the 2012 John D. Criticos Prize

“However, in general, this book is a marvel.” (European Journal of Archaeology, 1 January 2014)

“In sum, it is clear that with the extensive range of evidence carefully collected and well-analyzed in this volume, it will, as its author hopes, “contribute to a wider awareness of the rich history of this beautiful country in every century of its remarkable past.” (Bryn Mawr Classical Review, 1 November 2013)

“For others, however, The complete archaeology of Greeceis a valuable source of information, drawing a broad canvas, and, most significantly, exposing important questions concerning each period. . . Bintliff’s book is a generous reciprocation of Greek Philoxenia, a distillation of his long experience of Greek archaeology in the field, this theoretical positions and methodological tools, reaching out further than to the people of Greece alone." (Antiquity, 1 January 2013)

‘Named CHOICE Outstanding Title for 2012

“Summing Up: Recommended. All readers.” (Choice, 1 November 2012)

“Bintliff’s newest contribution provides an ambitious panorama of Greek archaeology . . . Bintliff’s book does more than any other major survey of Greek history or archaeology to bring the rural economy into the larger narrative of later Greek history.” (The New Archaeology of the Mediterranean World, 1 September 2012)

“By doing that he has delivered a brilliant survey of Greek archaeology and a remarkably succinct and comprehensive volume – a must read for anyone interested in the archaeology of Greece.” (The Anglo-Hellenic Review, 1 October 2012)

“It doesn’t get much more comprehensive than this.” (Corinthianmatters.com, 2 May 2012)
