Full description for Prehistory and History
Stretching from the Mycenaean Greeks of the second millennium to the Athenians of the fourth century B.C.E., this volume features the work of prominent scholars in the fields of classics, history, and archaeology. Essays include a study of the Bronze Age site of Glykys Limin in Epirus; the economy of Iron Age Cyprus; the nature of early Greek economic development, with a particular emphasis on a Greek settlement on the mouth of the Nile; traders and the economy of Athens in the fourth century B.C. and the idea of ethnic identity, as much a function of the nineteenth century as of the ancient world itself.David Tandy is Professor of Classics, University of Tennessee, Knoxville, TN and editor of, with Colin Duncan, "From Political Ecology to Anthropology," (Black Rose Books, 1994).
