Publisher's Description

Incorporating over a century of archaeological research, Greaves offers a reassessment of Archaic Ionia that attempts to understand the region within its larger Mediterranean context and provides a thematic overview of its cities and people.
  • Seeks to balance the Greek and Anatolian cultural influences at work in Ionia in this important period of its history (700BC to the Battle of Lade in 494BC)
  • Organised thematically, covering landscape, economy, cities, colonisation, warfare, cult, and art
  • Accesses German and Turkish scholarship, presenting a useful point of entry to the published literature for academics and students

Editorial Reviews

“Students of biblical history and archaeology will find this volume of particular interest.”  (Near East Archaeological Society Bulletin, 11 December 2013)

“The book is well produced, with an excellent binding and a minimum of typographical errors. A glossary of terms used in the text, an impressive bibliography, and a sufficient index add to the usefulness and user-friendliness of the book.”  (The American Journal of Archaeology, 1 January 2013)

"The book is well structured and is divided thematically into 10 chap¬ters . . . The book can be therefore recommended as a useful introduction to the study of Archaic Ionia for students and scholars alike." (Archaeological Review, 1 April 2011)

"This was a missed opportunity, but not significant enough to diminish the book's success and usefulness." (Bryn Mawr Classical Review, 17 April 2011)

"The study, and especially the maps, could prove a most useful preparation or ready reference when reading Herodotus." (Book News Inc, November 2010)

"Its accessibility and organization provides a much needed bridge between Classical and ‘mainstream' archaeology, and brings both the ideas and this intriguing region to a wider readership." (Minerva, November/December 2010)
