KALLISTI ("Most Beautiful")

Santa Barbara, CA: CelebrateGreece, 1996. (DVD Enlgish Language, No Subtitles, 1996, 21 Min.NTSC ) "This archaeological documentary artfully covers the Bronze Age origins of the Greek island of SANTORINI. Today Santorini taunts us to identify it with Plato's legendary lost island of ATLANTIS. The island's original name of KALLISTI, meaning "most beautiful", was given to it by the Minoans of Crete. Befitting the name Kallisti, this documentary conveys the awesome beauty that was, and is, Santorini.The present day excavation of the bronze age city of Akrotiri is producing extraordinary paintings, or frescoes, preserved within multi-storied buildings two-thousand years older than those of Pompei. Similar to Pompei, Akrotiri was preserved for immortality by the largest volcanic eruption in the last 10,000 years; a blast so large that it sank most of the island into the sea. It's global impact was chronicled by the Egyptians, the Chinese and even the writers of the Bible. But, it was Plato who wrote of the island over 1200 years after the fact giving birth to the greatest of all legends. Today Santorini is a popular tourist destination in the Aegean Sea and it remains one of the largest and most beautiful active volcanoes on earth awaiting one day to awaken us all again." .

Mycenae : a Guide to Its Ruins and Its History

By Mylonas, George E.

Athens: Ekdotike Hellados , 1977. For 30 years Professor George E. Mylonas directed excavations at Mycenae for Washington University in St. Louis and the Archaeological Society of Athens. (1951-1981) Thirty years of excavation have brought about the need for a Guide book such as this, which contains the latest results of the archaeologists' work at Mycenae. The illustrations and the many plans it contains will, I hope, make easy the study of the ruins which at first glance seem labyrinthine. In Part I of the Guide I give a full description of the remains on the acropolis of Mycenae; in Part II, an account of the tombs and houses to be found outside the acropolis. In Part III, I offer a concise account of the history and legends of Mycenae, of the excavations and of the excavators whose work has made possible the study of the Mycenaean civilization. In this way a rounded picture of the site and its historic role in the affairs of Greece may be obtained from reading the Guide and inspection of the site.It is hoped that the visit to the City of Agamemnon will prove a memorable experience for the reader. 80p. illus (+ Fold-out plans). 5th.edition. Pbk.. Very Good.
