Greece in the Making 1200-479 BC / Edition 2

"The challenge that faces the student of archaic Greece is this: how to understand the small communities of men and women scattered over mainland Greece, the Greek islands, the coast of Asia Minor, and, before long, over the coasts of Sicily, south Italy, and the Black Sea too, developed from the low level of organisation and poverty of material culture that we see in the ninth century BC, to the communities that laid the foundations of the cultural and political organisation of the western world of the fifth and fourth centuries". Osborne, in his quest to comprehend the cultural flowering of 'classica&lgrave; Greek civilisation, explores the haitus between the heights achieved by Minoans and Mycenaeans in the Bronze age and those of the fifth and following centuries. His reasoning is based on the evidence of texts, the archaeological record and artistic representation.
