Product description

The Greeks settled the western and southern coasts of Anatolia in the 11th century BC and Hellenism subsequently diffused inland with the institution of the polis, or city state, whose architecture, way of life and language were essentially Hellenic. Today, many architectural remains still exist and these are discussed and illustrated in this book. Brewster traces the history and development of civilization and building in Anatolia, interspersing the text with stories from Greek mythology.
