The Archaeology of Ancient Greece provides a synthesis of research on the material culture of Greece in the Archaic and Classical periods (1000-300 BC). The rich and diverse material culture of ancient Greece has always provoked admiration and even wonder, but it is seldom analysed as a key to our understanding of Greek civilisation. Dr Whitley shows how the material evidence can be used to address central historical questions for which literary evidence is often insufficient. He also situates Greek art within the broader field of Greek material culture, providing an historically more accurate perspective on both. This is a significant contribution to the integration of archaeological and art historical evidence.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'... a magisterial survey of the current state of Greek archaeology ...'. The Anglo-Hellenic Review
'... deserves the attention of us all ... an excellent account of what the discipline is, where it has been, and where it is now'. Bryn Mawr Classical Review
"It is an excellent account of what the discipline is, where it has been, and where it is now. Especially good is Whitley's tracking of the influences on the contemporary scene of science, structuralism, and the 'new' archeaology." Paul D. Scotton, University of Washington
"In this invaluable and long-needed book on Greek archaeology, Whitley begins with a discussion on the nature of classical art, then draws on his own expertise to present an outstanding account of the early development of Greek culture.... Accessible to a general archaeological readership, this book is essential for academic libraries, where it will become a standard sourcebook." Choice
