This splendid book discusses the development of Greek architecture in the Aegean and other Greek lands from its earliest beginnings around 3000 until the first century B.C. The eminent scholar A.W.

He also discusses Greek domestic architecture, town planning, theaters, and fortifications, providing details on the materials and methods with which all these buildings were constructed.

Now reissued with revisions by R.A. Tomlinson and with a stunning array of color illustrations, many photographed specially for this edition, this classic text will continue to enthrall and inform.
