Review quote

"This is an impeccable study. The presentation of the evidence is meticulous, with the result that we now have an understanding, as complete as the surviving evidence allows, of the transformation of a Mycenaean defensive bastion into a religious site that eventually carried one of the most delicate and delightful of Greek temples" Richard A. Tomlinson, "JHS" 115 (1995), p. 238.
