About the Authors
  • In their 1953 book, Documents in Mycenaean Greek, Michael Ventris (1922–56) and John Chadwick (1920–98) demonstrated that the previously mysterious script Linear B was, in fact, a syllabic form of written Greek, thereby revolutionizing ancient history and linguistics. In this second edition, originally published in 1973, Chadwick examines how the study of the subject has expanded since 1953 and includes some of the material discovered since the initial publication. This book continues to be a valuable part of Classical scholarship and will be of interest to Classicists of every discipline.
