This revised edition of John Griffiths Pedley's 1993 survey covers 3,000 years of Greek history with nearly 400 illustrations and an authoritative text that centers on material culture, especially pottery, statuary, and architecture.
Greek Art and Archaeology incorporates recent scholarship on matters such as influences from the Near East and the spread of Greek ideas to other parts of the Mediterranean.
Of special interest is Pedley's building-by-building history of the Parthenon, including a useful survey of its metopes and friezes.
He also offers well-considered stylistic notes on familiar objects, such as the Laocoön group and the Nike of Samothrace..
