About the Authors
  • The Archaeology of Greek and Roman Troy provides a synthetic overview of all excavations that have been conducted at Troy, from the 19th century through the latest discoveries between 1988 and the present. C. Brian Rose traces the social and economic development of the city and related sites in the Troad, as well as the development of its civic and religious centers from the Bronze Age through the early Christian period, with a focus on the settlements of Greek and Roman date. Along the way, he reconsiders the circumstances of the Trojan War and chronicles Troy's gradual development into a Homeric tourist destination and the adoption of Trojan ancestry by most nation-states in medieval Europe.

    • Provides the first comprehensive analysis of the archaeology of Troy, from the nineteenth- and early twentieth-century discoveries through the most recent excavations
    • The author has co-directed the Troy excavations from 1988 to the present, making him the foremost authority on the subject
    • This richly illustrated text, with over 150 black and white images and 29 color plates, will make Trojan history and archaeology accessible and useful to both student and expert
