The Greeks until Alexander

Excerpt

The reader of this survey may well think that art and architecture have been allotted too much space and the Greeks outside Greece itself too little. The reasons are that it is a principle of the series Ancient Peopley and Places to lay emphasis on material remains and that other volumes have been commissioned on the Eastern and the Western Greeks. This is not a complaint. In fact these conditions made my job easier.

As is natural and prudent, I have exploited my family and friends. Dr M. I Finley, Mr G. S. Kirk, Mr A. G. Wood, head, Professor J. M. Cook and Mrs K. Cook have read all or most of the text and given their advice. From Dr W. H. Plommer, Mr R. V. Nicholls, Mr M. H. Bräude, Mr J. N. Coldstream, Professor H. A. Harris and Mrs S. A. Adam I have had criticism and information on special topics, and there are other colleagues whom I have pestered with questions.

The illustrations proved more troublesome than I expected, and it was especially difficult to find photographs of ecological scenery. The persons and institutions who have let me use their photographs and drawings are mentioned in the 'Notes on the Illustrations'. Among others who have helped me in one way or another are Dr J. Papadimitriou, Mr R. Johnson and Mr S. C. Collard, whose services have been many, Miss S. Benton, Mr J. Boardman, Dr N. Breitenstein, the Managing Committee of the British School of Archaeology at Athens, Mr J. K. Brock, Mr B. F. Cook, Mr P. E. Corbett, Mrs P. Demoulini, Dr H. Diepolder, Dr J. Dörig, Mr J. W. Hayes, Professor A. Greifenhagen, the Hellenic Society, Mr R. A. Higgins, Professor A. W. Lawrence, Dr R. Lullies, Professor F. Matz, Professor H. Möbius, Mr G. Pollard, Professor K. Schefold, Mr Cecil Stewart, Miss V. Verhoogen, Dr C. C. Vermeule . . .
