9780313302046: An Encyclopedia of the History of Classical Archaeology: A-K

With 1,125 entries and 170 contributors, this is the first encyclopedia on the history of classical archaeology. It focuses on Greek and Roman material, but also covers the early cultures of the Bronze Age Aegeans and the Etruscans and manifestations of Greek and Roman culture in other parts of Europe and the Mediterranean Sea. Unlike recent studies focusing on the science of excavating, this book considers archaeological study in the Middle Ages, the Renaissance, and the modern era. It includes entries on individuals whose activities influenced knowledge of sites and monuments and sites as seen, changed, and interpreted through time; entries on major works of art excavated during the Renaissance; and works that were known in the Middle Ages.

Review:

"This illustrated encyclopedia is the first to treat the history of classical archaeology. It is especially strong in identifying those individuals throughout history who fostered the study of antiquity. The subject matter includes the visual remains of ancient Greece and Rome, the Bronze Age Aegean, the Etruscans, and remains of these cultures in other areas, such as France and Asia Minor....The scholarly nature of this encyclopedia will make it especially valuable to students, researchers, and teachers of archaeology, classics, history, and art and architectural history, and to curators in museums. Reading these volumes, one is struck with the fascination men and women have had with antiquity. Despite political upheavals and natural disasters, people have continued to seek the past. This volume adds immeasurably to that effort."-Booklist/Reference Books Bulletin

"The encyclopedia is well constructed and a fascinating 'good read.' It is certain to be a much-used resource in larger public and school libraries and in all college and university libraries."-RUSQ

"Useful and interesting for any research library or lover of archaeology and the classics, this work describes famous sites, artifacts, and figures from antiquity...The information provided includes major historical events, significant dates and discoveries, and artifactual and scientific details as well as additional bibliographic information, cross-references to complementary entries, and some illustrations."-Choice

"I foresee that this will be a necessary reference work in any major library and will have wide use not only by classicists but also by researchers working in the related subjects like the history of humanistic scholarship and the evolution of the classical tradition."-Stephen L. Dyson, Chair and Professor Classics Department, SUNY-Buffalo

"The long-awaited and much-needed Encyclopedia of the History of Classical Archaeology will fill a huge gap among the resources available to teachers, students, and the public at large. The wide selection of subjects discussed includes artists and architects, scholars and antiquarians, archaeologists and historians from the Renaissance onward whose work forms the core of the discipline....For anyone interested in the history of classical archaeology, this new book will provide a compact, yet far-reaching resource on a wide range of related subjects. I recommend it enthusiastically."-Nancy H. Ramage Professor, Art History Department, Ithaca College
