Description - Geometric Greece by J. N. Coldstream
This detailed archaeological survey covers the 9th and 8th century BC - a period which saw the evolution of the Greek city-states, the composition of the Honeric poems, the first of the great Panhellenic sanctuaries and the first exodus of Greek colonists to southern Italy and Sicily. This second edition has been updated with a substantial chapter on the abundant discoveries and developments made since the book's first publication. The text is presented in three main sections: the passing of the dark ages, c.900-770 BC; the Greek renaissance, c.770-700 BC, covered region by region, and the final part on life in 8th century Greece. Its geographical coverage of the Mediterranean ranges from Syria to Sicily, and the detailed archaeological evidence is amplified by reference to literary sources.
