From the Back Cover:

This book shows the reader how much archaeologists can learn fromrecent developments in cultural history. Cultural historians dealwith many of the same issues as postprocessual archaeologists, buthave developed much more sophisticated methods for thinking aboutchange through time and the textuality of all forms of evidence.The author uses the particular case of Iron Age Greece (c. 1100-300BC), to argue that text-aided archaeology, far from being merely atesting ground for prehistorians' models, is in fact in the bestposition to develop sophisticated models of the interpretation ofmaterial culture.

The book begins by examining the history of the institutionswithin which archaeologists of Greece work, of the beliefs whichguide them, and of their expectations about audiences. The secondpart of the book traces the history of equality in Iron Age Greeceand its relationship to democracy, focusing on changing ideas aboutclass, gender, ethnicity, and cosmology, as they were worked outthrough concerns with relationships to the past and the Near East.Ian Morris provides a new interpretation of the controversial siteof Lefkandi, linking it to Greek mythology, and traces theemergence of radically new ideas of the free male citizen whichmade the Greek form of democracy a possibility.
