"The site of the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus, one of the Seven Wonders of the World, was rediscovered and partially excavated by C.T. Newton's expedition in 1865-6, and has been cleared completely by the Danish Archaeological Expedition to Bodrum (1966-76). Most of the fragments of relief sculpture have not been published before. The larger pieces, including slabs formerly incorporated in the Castle at Bodrum, are well known, but new, detailed photographs are published here for the first time." "The introduction includes a history of the site and the reliefs, with a new hypothesis on their location in the castle, a critique of Newton's accounts of his excavation, and a definitive rebuttal of the many attempts made over the past century to attribute the reliefs to the sculptors named by Pliny and Vitruvius as responsible for decorating the four sides of the building, attempts now seen to be mistaken in method and misleading in results."--Jacket

Bernard Ashmole was a world authority on ancient Greek sculpture, who held professorships at University College, London and in Oxford in addition to a Keepership at the British Museum. As Keeper at the British Museum he was responsible for the evacuation of the Elgin Marbles before the Battle of Britain and for their reinstatement and display after the war. After his retirement he became an adviser to J. Paul Getty on the purchase of antiquities for his museum in Malibu, California. He was a practical man with a keen interest in how things were made and functioned, whether they were ancient Greek temples or furred-up heating pipes in the British School at Rome. The house which the architect Amyas Connell built for him in Buckinghamshire introduced Le Corbusier's International Style to England
