Primitive Culture in Greece

Excerpt

The following work is not meant for specialists either in anthropology or in Greek, but for those general readers who are interested in the history of mankind and wish to learn more of that race without which European civilization would not have been. Hence it lacks the elaborate apparatus of footnotes and other documentation which it would otherwise have, though I have tried to show where further information may be got; hence also its shortness and, what necessarily goes with that, an appearance of dogmatism on many points which the author well knows to be obscure. I have tried, however, in the third chapter, to give briefly my reasons for holding the theories here put forward, and not those which certain other students hold or have held.

To any of my colleagues, British or foreign, who glance through the book, my indebtedness to many writers, ancient and modern, will be fully apparent. Nevertheless, I take all responsibility for the views expressed, not simply for those few details which are of my own excogitating, but for the many which are taken over, with or without modification, from others. As to the errors which doubtless are to be found, it is obvious that they are entirely my own.

ABERYSTWYTH July, 1925
