Editorial Reviews

Review

"This is certainly a book for the departmental library, where it will be an important work of reference on current thinking in classical archaeology." (American Journal of Archaeology, April 2009)

"The book succeeds magnificently in introducing interested readers to what is most intellectually exciting about Classical Archaeology at present." (Cambridge Archaeological Journal, October 2008)

“The editors have succeeded in producing a book which clearly defines Classical Archaeology and summarises the great theoretical and methodological changes which have marked the field in recent years … This book should be indispensable for university libraries and achieves a considerable amount for its very reasonable price.” (Journal of Classics Teaching)

“The subject’s extraordinary range is treated well in all sections, which provide valuable insights … .This is a thorough research guide. Highly recommended.” (Choice)

“The editors deserve praise for the inspiring composition and the general idea of this book.” (Bryn Mawr Classical Review)

Review

"This book engagingly introduces students of archaeology, ancient history and classics to current themes in the archaeology of the Greek and Roman world. Written by leading scholars, it will be invaluable to students and scholars alike."
James Whitley, Cardiff University & Director of The British School at Athens

"Classical Archaeology is an excellent introduction to how Greek and Roman archaeology has changed in the last twenty years, with chapters by many of the field's leading figures. A must-read."
Ian Morris, Stanford University

"Classical Archaeology demonstrates the enormous breadth and depth of the field in a series of investigative essays written by world experts, for all interested in Greek and Roman culture to imbibe and enjoy."
Alan Johnston, University College London

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Ancient shovelbum on January 26, 2009
Format: Paperback
I recently used this book for my doctoral exams in archaeology and it is a must read for anyone interested in the theory of archaeology and specifically classical archaeology students. Not only does the book provide a good summation of the various theoretical approaches to archaeology, it also discusses how these approaches have been implemented in the fields of Greek and Roman archaeology, providing concrete examples from past and on-going field projects. The articles are in general easy to read, though I would suggest a passing familiarity with archaeological terminology before reading. The detail in some chapters may be overwhelming to the casual reader at first, but, in the end I think the book is readily accessible to readers in all fields.
