"This charming and humane book deserves the attention of all those interested in archaeology in the widest sense of the word and of those keen to understand man's relationship to the natural landscape." -- The Times Literary Supplement
"Beyond the Acropolis sets a new standard in the genre of popularizations of Mediterranean archaeological research." -- Modern Greek Studies Yearbook
"It is a rare and happy situation when a 'useful' book is also a pleasure to read. Such is the case with this book . . . which should be required reading for every person with a serious interest in any period of Greek history. . . . The presentation of the story is engaging, leavened throughout with wit and common sense. . . . The gracefully written text is accompanied by numerous maps and superb illustrations." -- American Historical Review
"The text is well written and clear, the authors say it was fun to write, and with a mixture of well-designed maps and sketches of modern life and landscape, it is attractively produced and a good read." -- Antiquity
