The pioneering aerial photographer Georg Gerster spent nearly 250 hours in the air to capture these stunning 'gods'-eye views' of Greece. They show significant ancient landscapes, monuments and sites such as Delphi and Knossos, the battlefield of Marathon, the alleged location of Homer's tomb and the modern metropolis of Athens, which is studded with classical ruins. Notes on each image, a glossary and timeline elucidate the cultural and historical context of the places shown.
