Assuming no prior knowledge, it introduces the reader to a select number of sites and temples in some depth, explaining technical terms along the way. The author has borne in mind the needs of students at sixth-form and university level, as well as the general reader, and has covered some of the core buildings and sanctuaries usually chosen for study owing to their social importance and aesthetic excellence, including the Athenian Acropolis, Delphi and Olympia.This accessible, well-illustrated book will inspire the visitor to Greece and equip the student of Greek architecture for further study.
