Now in its fifth edition, Greek Art and Archaeology charts the achievements of Greek art and civilization over 3000 years, from the abstract figures of the Cycladic islands and the mighty palaces of Crete to the baroque sculptures and complex architecture of the Hellenistic kingdoms. This new edition introduces a wealth of new material including discussion and illustration of new findings at early Bronze Age sites in Crete and the Cycladic Islands, the fourteenth century bc Uluburun shipwreck, the evolution of coinage in the Greek city states, the purpose and function of temples and the kouros figure in Archaic Greece, new ideas on interpreting the frieze of the Parthenon, and expanded coverage of the wealth and culture of Macedon. In addition, there are over 50 new color images of key works in the history of Greek art, including the Hera of Samos, the Motya charioteer, the Parthenon frieze, and newly commissioned photography of one of the masterpieces of later Greek art, the Alexander Sarcophagus. Written in a clear style, the book neatly balances lucid description with insightful interpretation and discussion. Intended for students and art enthusiasts of any age, it provides the most accessible and authoritative introduction to Greek art and archaeology available today.

This richly illustrated, four-colour textbook introduces the art and archaeology of ancient Greece, from the Bronze Age through to the Roman conquest. Suitable for students with no prior knowledge of ancient art, this textbook reviews the main objects and monuments of the ancient Greek world, emphasizing the context and function of these artefacts in their particular place and time. Students are led to a rich understanding of how objects were meant to be perceived, what 'messages' they transmitted and how the surrounding environment shaped their meaning. The book contains nearly five hundred illustrations (with over four hundred in colour), including specially commissioned photographs, maps, floorplans and reconstructions. Judith M. Barringer examines a variety of media, including marble and bronze sculpture, public and domestic architecture, painted vases, coins, mosaics, terracotta figurines, reliefs, jewellery and wall paintings. Numerous text boxes, chapter summaries and timelines, complemented by a detailed glossary, support student learning.
