Ancient Greece: The Dawn of the Western World sets out to relate the story of ancient Greece, its civilization, culture, and art, in a way no publication has ever done before. The book takes readers on a journey of discovery, using more than 1000 photographs of outstanding quality, many of them never before published. The book opens with a brief but complete history of Hellas, from its origins through the Roman conquest, and then moves on to an exploration of how the ancient Greeks lived - the homes they dwelled in, the jewelry they wore, the religions they practiced, the dramas they performed, the wars they fought, the games they played.

Review:

Boasting more than 1,000 photographs, Ancient Greece: The Dawn of the Western World is an unabashed celebration of "the glory that was Greece." Archaeologist Furio Durando discusses aspects of Greek history, art, and archaeology, but the pictures do most of the work, making this a coffee-table book worth keeping. Of added interest is a set of archaeological itineraries for visitors planning a tour of ancient Greek monuments, many of which are not in Greece but in southern Italy and Sicily.
