Excerpt

The object of the present work is to try to call more general attention to the results of recent excavation in Greek lands. This object I have tried to express in the title chosen: it will of course be understood that the New Chapters are not the chapters of this book, but the chapters which have been opened to us at Mycenae, at Olympia, and in the other scenes of recent researches. The interest of these researches is many-sided: some people will be attracted by their mythologic, some by their artistic results, some by their bearing on ancient life and manners, and so forth. On their artistic aspects I have scarcely touched, this book being not primarily concerned with art. My endeavour has been to set forth briefly, and, if possible, in a way tending to interest all Phil-hellenes, the gains which the excavations of the last twenty years have brought us in regard to our knowledge of Greek history, using the word history in the widest sense, as covering not only political events, but all sides of the activity of a nation.

About half of the matter in this work has been printed before. The greater part of Chapters IV., VI., VII., VIII., IX., XV. has appeared in the Quarterly Review . . .
