Sorry, this item is now out of stock.

Long before the era of modern tourism and archaeology, a few intrepid adventurers visited Greece and Turkey in search of ancient remains. These antiquaries, collectors and dilettanti are the subject of Stoneman's history of the gradual rediscovery of the classical past, from Cyriac of Ancona in the 1420s to Schliemann's controversial excavations in the late 19th century. First published in 1987, the book now features a new preface and additional bibliography. Slightly off-mint.
