"The study, and especially the maps, could prove a most useful preparation or ready reference when reading Herodotus." (Book News Inc, November 2010) "Its accessibility and organization provides a much needed bridge between Classical and ‘mainstream' archaeology, and brings both the ideas and this intriguing region to a wider readership." (Minerva, November/December 2010)
