Review quote

"a visual joy... Camp carefully matches historical to archaeological sources and to visual images... a model how it should be done." Peter Jones, The Sunday Telegraph; "Those seeking a straightforward, up-to-date, and wonderfully well-illustrated account of the monumental history of Athens will find themselves well served for several years to come." Robin Osborne, Times Literary Supplement; "A masterful interdisciplinary compendium. No volume has so successfully mined the riches of literature and history in pursuit of archeological evidence." Publishers Weekly; "This up-to-date book on archaeological Athens and Attica will fit in perfectly with courses dealing with ancient Greece in general and with classical Greek art and architecture in particular."- R. Ross Holloway, Brown University; "One of the few must-have books for every scholar and student, every library and every individual concerned with archaeology... An invaluable guide to further explorations for many visitors, students, and scholars." Linda Jones Roccos, Bryn Mawr Classical Review"show more
