9780820448893: Thera in the Bronze Age (American University Studies)

The modern excavations at Akrotiri, on the Greek island of Thera (also known as Santorini), have provided students of antiquity with a unique opportunity to examine the civilization of the Aegean Bronze Age (3000-1100 BC) and the role of Thera within it. Thera in the Bronze Age presents a detailed study of the geography, history, and culture of a vibrant society that met its end in a catastrophic volcanic eruption which, ironically, preserved the city at Akrotiri just as it was in its final moments.

About the Author:

The Author: Phyllis Young Forsyth (Ph.D., University of Toronto) is Professor of classical studies at the University of Waterloo, Canada. Her early interest in the island of Thera led to Atlantis: The Making of Myth (1980). She has also published numerous articles on the effects of volcanic eruptions on Greco-Roman civilization.

Review:

«Prof. Forsyth is to be congratulated on taking the bull by the horns and producing a compact workmanlike and up-to-date account of research at Akrotiri, and on the island of Thera as a whole...This is a conscientious, measured and useful synthesis.» (J. Lesley Fitton, Minerva)
