I found this fascinating. A nice mix of the early history of the archaeology of ancient Greece, along with details of what was found. Includes stories of the finding of Troy, Mycenae, and the palace at Knossos. Read with a grain of salt, however. Published in 1952, some of the interpretations have changed as more has been discovered. Has me eager to find some more recent sources to answer the unanswered questions.
