?Sue Alcock and Robin Osborne's Classical Archaeology is already a classic in its own right, and this second edition keeps it up-to-date with the latest finds and ideas coming out of Mediterranean archaeology. The essays in this volume remain the best starting point for any student coming to the field.? - Ian Morris, Stanford University ?This second edition builds on and improves the strengths of the first, adding crucial chapters on that central issue in Classical archaeology ? namely art? - James Whitley, Cardiff University ?To the question, ?what is classical archaeology?? this book provides a robust response: it is a discipline that is alive with new questions, new theories, and an ever-expanding corpus of material-cultural knowledge of the world of Greek and Roman antiquity.? - R. Bruce Hitchner, Tufts University ?With essays by some of the leading lights of the discipline, revised to take account of the latest research, and expanded with two new essays on classical art, the second edition of Alcock and Osborne's Classical Archaeology offers the best introduction to the field for students and teachers alike.? - Jeremy Tanner, University College London ?A star-studded volume that assures the Classical world its rightfully prominent place within world archaeology, while also satisfying those looking for a deeper interrogation of its past.? - Cyprian Broodbank, University College London
