Synopsis: 'The Sites of Ancient Greece' presents 150 of Georg Gerster's most spectacular and evocative photographs of the landscapes and architecture - both ancient and modern - of Greece, a country he has visited and photographed numerous times in his long career. The photographs in this book were taken between 1996 and 2006. A short preface by Gerster himself and an introductory essay convey a sense of why this country, its history, myths and landscapes, have captured the hearts and minds of so many for thousands of years, from ancient kings and poets to modern holiday-makers. In addition, a map of the featured locations and a timeline listing the key dates, events and eras of the ancient Greek world help set the scene for the picture section to follow. Arranged geographically by region, the images in this book take the viewer on a guided tour of Greece and her islands, from cloud-topped Mount Olympus, home of the Gods, in the northern mainland to the isle of Crete in the Mediterranean Sea.

About the Author: Paul Cartledge (b.1947) is Professor of Greek History, the AG Leventis Professor of Greek Culture and a Fellow of Clare College, Cambridge. He also holds a visiting Global Distinguished Professorship at New York University. Cartledge is a world expert on Athens and Sparta in the Classical Age and was chief historical consultant for the BBC TV series `The Greeks' and the Channel 4 series `The Spartans'. His most recent books include Ancient Greek Political Thought in Practice (2009) and Ancient Greece: A History in Eleven Cities (2009). He is also honorary citizen of (modern) Sparta. Georg Gerster (b.1928) is a pioneer in aerial photography. For over forty years he has taken breath-taking pictures of mountains, coasts and spectacular archeological sites in 111 countries on all continents. Based near Zurich, Switzerland, he also works as a journalist, and is a regular contributor to the Neue Zurcher Zeitung and National Geographic.
