This informative and stimulating book will introduce the reader to the alluring new science of archaeology, which is responsible for as much widening of human horizons as are any of the physical sciences. Rhys Carpenter chiefly surveys the contribution of archaeology to the study of classical architecture, of Greek literature, of sculpture, and of painting. As an archaeologist of experience and repute, he is unusually competent to express an opinion on the manifold problems which he raises in the book.
