A History of Greece: From the Time of Solon to 403 B.C

By George Grote; J. M. Mitchell et al. | Go to book overview

Greek history. But not only is this the part in which Grote was primarily interested; it is also that part which lends itself most satisfactorily to reproduction at the present day. Recent research in Greek history has only confirmed the main outline which Grote gave with so much fulness and accuracy. To reproduce to any purpose his account of the Legendary Period or of Alexander the Great would demand elaborate alteration, and even reconstruction, such as is impossible within the limits of a volume of this kind. This book, therefore, contains that portion of the History which is the essence of the work, and is also incomparably the most valuable in itself to the student of ancient history, even at the present day, when, as we have seen, the literature of the subject has so enormously increased.

Special periods

1. PRE-HISTORIC AND PROTO-HISTORIC. - Owing to the extreme rapidity with which knowledge on these periods is being accumulated, all text-books tend to pass quickly out of date. The following works may be found useful:

C. SCHUCHHARDT, Schliemann's Excavations (Eng. trans., Lond., 1891).

E. MEYER, Geschichte des Altertums, vol. ii.

J. B. BURY, History of Greece, chaps. 1-3.

W. RIDGEWAY, The Early Age of Greece (Lond., 1901).

H. R. HALL, The Oldest Civilization of Greece (Lond., 1901).

Students desirous of keeping in touch with the latest results should consult the various periodicals of the archaeological schools, especially the Annual of the British School at Athens, the Athenische Mittheilungen, and the Bulletin de Correspondance Hellénique; also the Journal of Hellenic Studies.
