Product description

Written in a first person "quest for knowledge hidden for thousands of years" style this is an entertaining trip around Greece, ancient and modern in search of "the last secrets of antiquity". There is, to be fair also a surprising amount of detailed research on Greek Oracles, and the ways in which they were viewed by contemporaries.

Review quote

"Accounts of the major achievements of the great archaeologists have spawned scores of best-selling books. The result [of Philipp Vandenberg's book] is engrossing. - Houston Post...a history filled with chicanery, treachery, deceit, cupidity, violence and even beauty, love and compassion. Philipp Vandenberg's Oracles may be safely consulted for hours of delightful and startling reading. - San Diego Magazine"
