The text is very light, but good enough for getting a good general introduction to the topic, which is actually the archaeology of ancient greece from its early beginnings to the time of publication. Supplemented with lots of illustrations, photos, period drawings and so on.

As best as could be done with this subject, not just the search for ancient Greece but the birth of archeology is covered, in a book which is accessible to amateurs and illuminating to professionals alike!

Good little primer on Greek history and Western attitudes towards its art and culture (and how a lot of it got stolen).
