Recommends it for: anyone interested in greece from the Iron Age to the Classical Period.
Shelves: ancientcultures
Hurwit was a my professor at the time I read this book, and this book coveys the incredible lucidity and poetry of his lectures.

This book and his classes made me want to become an archaeologist.
