"The Early Iron Age of Greece, an obscure but crucially formative period in the growth of the most important civilization of the western world, has been traversed in earlier studies but seldom if ever examined in such detail as in the present volume. Dr. Snodgrass has produced an exhaustive synthesis of present knowledge of the period. . Although the book reveals discontinuity in many aspects of material life, its ultimate message is one of continuity at the most fundamental level of all, that of human population." (dj).

Book Description Edinburgh University Press, Edinburgh, 1971. Cloth. Condition: Good. No Jacket. First Edition. Constructs a narrative of four centuries of Greek history from a synthesis of literary and archaeological evidence, including pottery, burial practices, architecture and metalwork, religion, commerce and language. The author argues that this era was in truth a dark age, from the perspective both of scholarship and the people who lived through it conscious of lost skills and departed glories. The recession was caused, he demonstrates, not by external factors but by aprocess of internal collapse. Rebound in strong library binding. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Ex-Library.

'This ambitious undertaking by Snodgrass covers an extremely complicated period in Greek history which includes Sub-Mycenaean (ca.1125-1050). Protogeometric (1050-900), and Geometric (900-700). It is a most interesting idea to treat these centuries as a unity.(?) Following the disasters that caused the collapse of the Mycenaean world during the twelfth century B.C., Greece experienced a severe recession, culminating in a period of isolation ca 1050-950 B.C. Snodgrass sees a slow recovery after this, but maintains that Greece did not really emerge from the Dark Age until the middle of the 8th century.'
