Studies in Classical Archaeology

Excavating Classical Culture - Recent Archaeological Discoveries in Greece, inaugurates a new series, Studies in Classical Archaeology, in the same format as Studies in the History of Collections.

The series is published by the Beazley Archive in the University of Oxford and Archaeopress, the Oxford-based publisher of British Archaeological Reports. It aims to make high quality books on classical archaeology and art available quickly and at a reasonable price.

The second volume in the series, The Lewes House Gems, by J.D. Beazley was published in October 2002. It is a revised edition, by Sir John Boardman, of Beazley's classic publication of 1920.

The third volume is Reception of Classical Art, an Introduction. A series of lectures took place in the autumn of 2003 designed to complement two options in the Master of Studies in Classical Archaeology. It was decided to publish the lectures as delivered, without footnotes, but with bibliographies specifically chosen for our students.

The fourth volume is Essays in Classical Archaeology for Eleni Hatzivassiliou 1977-2007. A memorial volume, compiled by friends and colleagues, presented to her parents on the first anniversary of her tragic death on the island of Lesbos in July 2007.

The fifth volume is Cruelty and sentimentality: Greek attitudes to animals, 600-300 BC. A work examining archaeological and literary evidence to discover how ancient Greeks regarded, interacted with, used, and treated tame and domestic animals, as well as some prominent wild species.

Volume I
Excavating Classical Culture
Recent Archaeological Discoveries in Greece

edited by M. Stamatopoulou and M. Yeroulanou

This volume publishes more than twenty papers on recent work in Greece from a remarkable, in some respects unique, meeting of archaeologists, which took place in Somerville College, University of Oxford, in March 2001. Recent archaeological activity in Greece has yielded a wealth of material enhancing our knowledge of classical Greece. The colloquium was the first collective presentation of these finds in the United Kingdom, offering a rare opportunity for scholars to acquaint themselves with the recent discoveries. The papers draw on first-hand material provided by prominent scholars who are currently working on archaeological sites in Greece.
