A BRIEF HISTORY OF ANCIENT GREECE POMEROY PDF

Classical Studies, Archaeology, etc. Additionally, there are frequent mentions of the Ancient Near East, which had major influences on the history of Ancient Greece to say the least ; but mentions of said topic are left open-ended and vague. Some knowledge of the Ancient Near East in its own right is what is necessary for this book to be properly understood by the reader; otherwise, the material presented is inappropriately isolated and misinterpreted by the reader to an extent. What I appreciated about this book is the consistent sections of "Suggested Readings" at the end of most chapters. That is a great way to provide someone with limited to no prior knowledge on the history of Ancient Greece further credible resources to continue with. Side note: Many sections of this book rely on a wide range of archaeological evidence to support various conclusions.

Four leading authorities on the classical world offer a lively and up-to-date account of Greek civilization and history in all its complexity and variety, covering the entire period from the Bronze Age through the Hellenistic Era, and integrating the most recent research in archaeology, comparative anthropology, and social history.
