From the Back Cover:

The Complete Archaeology of Greece provides, for the first time, a comprehensive overview of the story of Greece from the first hunter-gatherers up to the Modern era.  In 22 chapters and an introduction, John Bintliff surveys all phases of Greek culture, including the traditional foci of the Classical Greek and the Bronze Ages, but also detailing its beginnings in the Greek Palaeolithic (ca. 400,000 B.P.) up to the early modern period (1950 A.D.). Each chronological period is fully explained with the latest discoveries and theories, and richly illustrated. The author focuses on developments during each succeeding period of growth and change in Greek society, the evolution of their material culture, settlement patterns in the rural as well as urban landscapes, and the significance of their symbolic or representational culture—the ways in which architecture, art, and even everyday objects can reveal the social order and lifeways of the ancient Greeks. John Bintliff features well-known works of Greek art, architecture, and ancient texts, but also integrates the newest archaeological discoveries, surveys and excavations for a more comprehensive picture of the Greek past.

About the Author:

He has taught at Bradford and Durham Universities and is currently at Leiden University in the Netherlands, and has been co-director of the Boeotia Project in Central Greece since 1978. His interests include the long-term archaeology of Greece and the Mediterranean, landscape archaeology and regional field survey, and archaeological theory. He has published 18 books, including Mycenaean Geography (1977), Palaeoclimates, Palaeoenvironments (1982), European Social Evolution (1984), The Annales School and Archaeology (1991), Europe Between Late Antiquity and the Middle Ages (1995), Structure and Contingency (1999), The Future of Archaeological Field Survey in Europe (2000), A Companion to Archaeology (2004), Testing the Hinterland (2007), Medieval and Post-Medieval Greece (2009).
