The dark age of Greece: an archaeological survey of the eleventh to the eighth centuries BC by Anthony M Snodgrass( Book )

45 editions published between 1971 and 2008 in English and Spanish and held by 923 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Professor Snodgrass constructs a narrative of four centuries of Greek history from an exhaustive synthesis of literary and archaeological evidence - pottery, burial-practices, architecture and metalwork, and what can be discovered of religion, commerce, and language. He argues that this was in truth a dark age, from the perspective both of scholarship and, more importantly, of the people who lived through it in poor, isolated communities, conscious of lost skills and departed glories. The recession was caused, he shows, not by external factors but by processes of internal collapse. And yet, although the book reveals material discontinuity, its ultimate conclusion is that at the most fundamental level of culture, human population, a continuity can be discerned, between the greatness of Mycenae and the rebirth of urban civilization, the dawning of the Classical age."

Sources for ancient history by Michael H Crawford( Book )

6 editions published between 1983 and 1984 in English and Italian and held by 818 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

If a scholar wishes to create a picture of a topical society in all its aspects, there is little of what he needs to know that he cannot know, although there may still be much that he cannot understand. For the history of Greece and Rome, there is a great deal that is simply unknowable. From the end of the archaic age of Greece, there is an unbroken sequence of works by Greek and, later, Roman historians down to the end of antiquity. Their vision and range of interest were often limited and much of what they produced has been lost. Some help may be derived from the documentary material supplied in antiquity, material that was the product of officials organising public activities, or heads of families organising their affairs, or individuals leaving their mark on the world. Beyond this, the evidence of archaeology and numismatics may also be helpful. The four essays in this book set out to characterise the nature of the ancient literary tradition, the inscriptional material, the archaeological and numismatic evidence and to explain how and for what purposes they may be used

Archaeology and the emergence of Greece by Anthony M Snodgrass( Book )

16 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 526 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book brings together twenty-five papers by A.M. Snodgrass, some of them previously published only in rather inaccessible places, which have contributed to this change. They cover four decades of work on pre-Classical and Classical Greece and some adjacent fields of scholarship, beginning in the 1960s when Classical archaeology was not widely seen as a free-standing subject. They chart the progress of a movement for the intellectual independence of Greek archaeology and art, from history and textual studies and for recognition among other branches of archaeology."--Jacket

Arms and armor of the Greeks by Anthony M Snodgrass( Book )

8 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Arms and Armor of the Greeks, A.M. Snodgrass uses literary, archaeological, and artistic evidence to piece together a picture of ancient Greek armory from the Mycenaean period through the campaigns of Alexander the Great. Ancient Greece was neither populous nor rich in natural resources, Snodgrass explains, so it is remarkable that the Greeks succeeded in battle as often as they did. A new afterword written for this edition comments on recent research and discoveries in the field."--Jacket

Interpreting the images of Greek myths : an introduction by Klaus Junker( Book )

7 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Great events of myth such as the Trojan War and outstanding figures like Herakles, Oedipus, Medea or the great Olympian Gods have a firm place in the cultural consciousness of the present day. At the same time, the Greek myths play a prominent role in the study of the Classical world. That such a wide range of disciplines - Classical Philology, Ancient History, Classical Archaeology, and Philosophy - draw on these myths for their research has much do with the fact that, in antiquity, myths and their content were present in so many facets of human existence"--
The language of images in Roman art by Tonio Hölscher( Book )

5 editions published between 2003 and 2007 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This work develops a new theoretical concept for the understanding of the Roman art of images. It establishes a connection between artistic forms and content and expressions of ideology, such as the glorification of state and ruler, war and triumph
