An archaeology of Greece : the present state and future scope of a discipline by Anthony M Snodgrass( )

27 editions published between 1987 and 1992 in English and Spanish and held by 2,297 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

50 editions published between 1967 and 1999 in 3 languages and held by 1,342 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."--BOOK JACKET
The dark age of Greece: an archaeological survey of the eleventh to the eighth centuries BC by Anthony M Snodgrass( Book )

55 editions published between 1971 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 1,232 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 )

10 editions published between 1983 and 1985 in English and held by 810 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 570 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."--BOOK JACKET
Early Greek armour and weapons, from the end of the bronze age to 600 B.C by Anthony M Snodgrass( Book )

Homer and the artists : text and picture in early Greek art by Anthony M Snodgrass( Book )

15 editions published between 1998 and 2011 in English and held by 541 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a book about Homer, myth and art. The Iliad and Odyssey so dominate our view of ancient Greece that our natural reaction on viewing certain works of early Greek art is to identify them as 'scenes from Homer'. However, Anthony Snodgrass argues that, so far from 'illustrating' the Homeric poems, these works very rarely show signs of acquaintance with the Iliad or Odyssey, seldom even choosing their subject-matter from them. When the subjects do overlap, the artists occasionally give positive signs of preferring a non-Homeric version of the episode. He then attempts to explain why this should be so: despite Homer's unique standing in antiquity, the artists inhabited an independent world, where their own inspirations and concerns dominated their production

Testing the hinterland : the work of the Boeotia Survey (1989-1991) in the southern approaches to the city of Thespiai by J. L Bintliff( Book )

14 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Boeotia Survey in Greece is widely recognized as a milestone in Mediterranean landscape archaeology in the sophistication and rigour of its methodologies, and in the scale of the 25-Year investigation. This first volume of the project's publication deals with the landscape that formed part of the territory of the ancient city of Thespiai. This landscape acted as the laboratory in which the project refined its methodology: the entire territory was traversed systematically by survey teams, and artefacts were collected not only from every archaeological site located but also as 'off-site' material indicative of land-use practices such as manuring. The methodology made possible the construction of detailed period and density maps of rural activity, throwing unprecedented light on the interaction of the city with its hinterland particularly in its period of maximum size between the fifth century B.C. and the sixth century A.D., as well as providing an exemplar for Mediterranean landscape archaeology more generally."--Jacket

Archaeology and the emergence of ancient Greece : collected papers on early Greece and related topics (1965-2002) by Anthony M Snodgrass( Book )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Classical archaeology has changed beyond recognition in the past generation, in its aims, its choice of subject-matter and the methods it uses. 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. The key theme of the papers is the importance of the Iron Age as the formative period in the making of Classical Greece and the author varies this with comment on literature, history, anthropology, Aegean and European prehistory and Roman provincial archaeology. This book will be an important one for all archaeology and ancient history collections. This collection of essays: represents innovative work in Classical archaeology challenges accepted boundaries and inhibitions is wide in scope covering history, prehistory, art, literary interpretation, field archaeology
La Mort, les morts dans les sociétés anciennes by Claudio Barocas( )

1 edition published in 2016 in French and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Étudier les divers aspects de la relation entre mythe et pensée chez les Grecs, de la période archaïque (Homère et Hésiode) à la période hellénistique, en s'efforçant d'éclairer à la fois les continuités et les ruptures au plan des interprétations et de l' "usage" du mythe, tel est l'objet de cet ouvrage. Les essais qui le composent, extraits des travaux de Louis Gernet, Jean-Pierre Vernant, Pierre Vidal-Naquet et Marcel Detienne (les trois derniers étroitement unis par leur dette commune à l'égard du premier et leurs enseignements parallèles à l'École des Hautes Études depuis plus de dix ans), témoignent tous, à l'exception de celui de Louis Gernet, de la volonté des auteurs de réconcilier les conceptions anciennes, issues pour l'essentiel de Durkheim et de ses élèves, avec le structuralisme tel qu'élaboré par Lévi-Strauss. Vu l'énormité du champ, quatre grands domaines ont été choisis : le mythe comme révélateur de la cohérence interne de l'idée que se faisaient les Grecs du divin ; le mythe comme producteur de sens pour l'ensemble de la culture grecque, pour autant qu'il combine en lui des motifs venus des domaines les plus divers de l'existence ; le rapport entre le mythe et certains secteurs mal assurés de la vie sociale, tels que la valeur de certains objets ou les changements de statut des individus ; enfin, le mythe comme donneur de "formes" dans lesquelles enfreindre les règles, à la fois pour confirmer la norme et pour échapper, symboliquement et réellement, aux lois et aux signifiés sociaux dominants. Ce livre s'adresse à tous ceux qui, quelle que soit leur discipline, s'intéressent au mythe et à la société antique
Boeotia project. survey at a complex urban site by J. L Bintliff( Book )

4 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Few major Classical cities have disappeared so completely from view, over the centuries, as Thespiai in Central Greece. Only the technique of intensive field survey, carefully adapted to a large urban site and reinforced by historical investigation, has made it possible to recover from oblivion much of its life of seven millennia
An age of experiment : classical archaeology transformed (1976-2014) by Lisa C Nevett( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What is Classical Archaeology's place within the overall study of antiquity and the history of humanity? And what is its relationship to its kindred disciplines of ancient history, art history and Mediterranean prehistory? Forty or so years ago Classical Archaeology appeared to be a very conservative and rather niche area of scholarly endeavour. Then both prehistorians and ancient historians might have answered that Classical Archaeology had little to offer their respective fields of study. Since the late 1970s, however, the subject has been transformed, a transformation in which the example of Anthony Snodgrass has played a significant role. This volume brings together the work of Snodgrass's former students ; scholars who, while they could be variously classified as prehistorians, ancient historians, Classical archaeologists, Classical art historians, Classicists and modern historians, are internationally recognised scholars in their respective fields. Each contribution brings a unique perspective to bear on the current state of Classical archaeology and its place in not only Mediterranean but global history, art history and archaeology
