Ancient Corinth: Site Guide (7th ed.)
This is the first official guidebook to the site of Ancient Corinth published by the American School of Classical Studies at Athens in 50 years. Fully updated with the most current information, color photos, and plans, this new edition of the guide to the archaeological site of Corinth is an indispensable resource for the casual tourist or the professional archaeologist. Two large-scale maps provide an overview of the site, and are keyed to discussions of the major monuments. The guide begins with a history of Corinth and its excavations, and continues with a tour inside the fenced area of the site, from the Temple of Apollo to the Bema to the Fountain of Peirene and more. The final section describes the monuments outside the fenced area, including the Odeion, the Theater, and the Asklepieion. Short bibliographic notes lead the reader to fuller descriptions of monuments, objects, and concepts. Interspersed between descriptions of the monuments are topographical notes and discussions of special topics such as the geology of the area, Pausanias's description of the city, St. Paul's visits, and prehistoric Corinth and the Corinthia.

Flame of Miletus: The Birth of Science in Ancient Greece (and How It Changed the World)
Miletus: one of the wealthiest and most important towns in ancient Greece. It was here, on the Aegean coast of Asia Minor, in the 6th century BC, that the great traditions of Greek science and philosophy sparked into life, setting in motion a chain of knowledge that would change the world, forever. This is the extraordinary story of Greek science from its earliest beginnings through its development in classical Athens and Hellenistic Alexandria and its subsequent diffusion to the wider world. Most histories of Greek science end with the collapse of the Graeco-Roman world in late antiquity and the closing of all classical schools of 'pagan' philosophy in A.D. 529. But acclaimed historian John Freely here continues the story to tell of how the elements of Greek scientific and philosophical learning were adopted by the Islamic world and the transmission of Graeco-Islamic science to western Europe, as well as the preservation of Hellenic culture in Byzantium and its profound influence on the European renaissance and our modern world.

Homer's Iliad and the Trojan War: Dialogues on Tradition
`Sing Fury!', the opening words of Homer's Iliad, mark the start of a new cultural tradition - a tradition that has echoed through the centuries from antiquity to the present day. This book explores the way that artists, poets, dramatists, historians and scientists have responded to the Iliad during this time, considering how the myth of the Trojan War has been reimagined over the ages. Through a series of detailed case studies this volume teases out several key themes from conflict to causes, heroism to hope. Ancient and modern aspects are paired by genre, with the two authorial voices of Haywood and Mac Sweeney engaging in a dialogue across each pair of studies. This deliberate pairing serves to highlight changes and continuities over time, as well as differences in perspective on the key themes. The result is a broad-ranging investigation into Iliadic receptions, which begins by reflecting on Homer's epic itself as a work of reception and concludes with the Homeric resonances in the 21st century, taking in the archaic Greek symposium, Augustan Rome and the Pre-Raphaelites along the way.

Troy: Myth, City, Icon
From the palaces of Homeric epic to the ancestral seat of Roman emperors, Troy in antiquity was a place couched in myth. But for nearly four millennia, Troy was also a living city, inhabited by real people. Troy today is therefore a site of major archaeological and historical significance. In the modern world, however, Troy has become as much a symbol as a site. From movies to computer viruses, from condom branding to reggae records, Troy is a word to conjure with. This book explores the significance of Troy in three areas: the mythic, the archaeological, and the cultural, and highlights the continuing importance of the site today. Including a survey of the archaeological remains of Troy as they are currently understood, the volume presents an all-inclusive overview of the site's history, from the Troy of Homer to Classical Antiquity and beyond. The modern day cultural significance of the Trojan War is also discussed, including re-tellings of the stories or representations of the site and myth, and the more abstract use of Troy as a symbol - as a brand for consumer goods, and as a metaphor for contemporary conflicts.

Periclean Athens
In the second and third quarters of the fifth century BC, when Athens became both politically and culturally dominant in the Greek world, Pericles became the leading figure in the city's public life. This concise and accessible introduction guides students through the key aspects of this most-studied period of ancient Greek history, focusing on the major developments, political and cultural, that took place under Pericles. Although a member of the group of families which had been most prominent for the past century or more, Pericles was a supporter of the democracy which was brought to completion in the 460s and 450s. At the same time Athens developed an empire of a kind which no Greek city had had before. The resulting political changes inspired religious developments and a new form of secularism, while the sophists revolutionised philosophy, and Athenian tragedy became the principal Greek poetic form. This volume's illustrations further show the numerous artistic and sculptural developments under Pericles, as his building programmes attracted architects, builders and sculptors to Athens, and Athenian red-figure pottery reached new heights of skill in the scenes painted on it.

The Road to Sparta: Reliving the Epic Run that Inspired the World's Greatest Foot Race
In 490 BCE Pheidippides ran for 36 hours straight from Athens to Sparta to seek help in defending Athens from a Persian invasion. He was hailed as a hero and his run stands enduringly as one of greatest physical accomplishments in history. Dean Karnazes honours this achievement and his own Greek heritage by attempting this ancient journey in modern times. His account of running the gruelling Spartathlon, fuelled only by the figs, olives and meats available to Pheidippides, will captivate even the most sedentary readers.
