Abstract

Nancy Thomson de Grummond has done a tremendous service for those scholars interested in the history of Classical Archaeology. In the 1330 pages that are the two handsome volumes that makeup the set, Thomson de Grummond provides a series of biographical sketches a many classical archaeologists and discussions of archaeological site locations which provide an excellent and concise look at the conduct of classical archae­ology through time.

The biographical sketches contained in the volumes represent both the lay and profes­sional classical archaeologist. Represented in the volumes are archaeologists from established religious orders in the classical world as well as those who derived their interest in classical archaeology from the burgeoning interest in the development of the European scientific community. In addition, discussion of selected artifact discoveries are included in both volumes to round out the interest that anyone might have in the origins and development of classical archaeology.
