The Living Past of Greece : A Time Traveller's Tour of Historic and Prehistoric Places

Burn, A.R.& Burn, Mary

Boston: Little Brown & Co., 1980 The whole of Greece, as every traveller and archaeologist knows, is alive with history and prehistory. Mr and Mrs Burn select over seventy of the most important and interesting places, islands and buildings, relate what happened there in the past, and describe in detail what now remains. Some of these sites are well known, others less so; but all have been chosen not only for their historical interest and beauty, but also because remains still exist, usually above foundation level, bringing the past to life. Inevitably, the greater part of this book is devoted to prehistoric and classical places, sites of a civilisation ancestral to our own; but attention is also given to the great (and some small) churches and monasteries of Christian Greece and to the major Frankish castles of mediaeval times. A lively outline of Greek history provides an introduction and puts the whole in perspective, and each site is illustrated by a specially-drawn plan or map and, in many cases, a photograph. The authors' enthusiasm for the country and its past is vividly conveyed in their writing, making The Living Past of Greece an invaluable companion for the traveller already there or for the reader and potential traveller at home.. 1st.US Edition.. Hard Cover. Fine/Fine.
