Description - The Dark Age of Greece by Anthony M. Snodgrass

This volume constructs a narrative of four centuries of Greek history from a synthesis of literary and archaeological evidence, including pottery, burial practices, architecture and metalwork, religion, commerce and language. The author argues that this era was in truth a dark age, from the perspective both of scholarship and the people who lived through it conscious of lost skills and departed glories. The recession was caused, he demonstrates, not by external factors but by aprocess of internal collapse.
