'Classical' and 'archaeology' are both terms which call for definition. Here the term 'Classical' is interpreted as widely as possible to include material relating to periods from the Bronze Age to the early Byzantine, and to countries from Britain to Turkey. Coverage of 'archaeology' will range from the discovery of sites to conserving and presenting them, from the viewpoint of practising archaeologists working in various parts of the ancient Greek and Roman worlds. This book combines explanation of methods and techniques with case studies of particular sites which demonstrate different themes in, and approaches to, the overall subject. Principles and methods including prospecting, excavation, dating, stratigraphy and presentation are considered alongside an account of the development of Classical archaeology - as seen in the work of famous pioneers such as Evans and Schliemann - to the more scientific approaches used in contemporary projects. Case studies include sites which are currently being studied by the authors. Aimed at A-level students and first-year undergraduates as well as those with a general interest, this is a lively introduction to the ways in which archaeologists interpret Classical sites, enabling informed observation and enhanced understanding of technical publications. It is profusely illustrated and benefits from topical research, with the inclusion of results of current fieldwork.
