This book provides a comprehensive introduction to the development and current state of the excavations at this outstanding historical site. In the first part of this volume, archaeologists working in the Athenian Agora shed light on ancient Greek society by detailing selected finds and remains. The second part details the history of the excavations since 1931 and explains how archaeological procedures have changed over the decades. The book is illustrated throughout with both archival and modern large-format images, and up-to-date maps and plans, providing insight into over 75 years of excavations in the Athenian Agora. (Published by Philipp von Zabern, in collaboration with the American School of Classical Studies at Athens.)
