Item Description...
The extensive excavations required to build the new Athens Metro have unearthed archaeological finds of staggering importance. Under the modern city, untouched for thousands of years, lay a wealth of artifacts and the remains of homes, market-places, and temples from ancient Athens. This full-color book presents the astonishing discoveries from this city beneath the city -- bringing the capital of the classical world to life once again.

Working just steps ahead of the Metro construction, archaeologists labored to preserve the ancient city, removing entire foundations intact. What they found can be seen in an extraordinary exhibition at the Museum of Cycladic Art in Athens -- and in this glorious book. Spanning Athenian life from the Mycenaean to the Byzantine eras, the 500 objects featured range from statues, pottery, and jewelry to tools, toys, a dog collar, and a large stone slab listing the dead from three battles of the Peloponnesian War, mentioned by Thucydides. On every captivating page, Athens: The City Beneath the City resonates with new information about the dynamic culture of ancient Greece.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Another Good Reason to Visit Athens  Jul 2, 2001
This is a magnificient book, tribute to an incredible and meaningful project. Readers interested in the antiquities will want this; those who are involved in urban planning, cultural heritage conservation or related fields should definitely take a look. Considering that much of modern Athens is practically an archaeological treasure trove, it says something for the Athenians that they are willing to delay construction of important infrastructure so that thorough investigations of all sites affected can be made, and even change the location for a planned station so as to accomodate the preservation of a site.

The value of this book lies not in any breathtaking discoveries, but rather in the meticulous record of each site excavated and the indefatigable love of history which permeates throughout. It is a pity that in many other places with sufficient material prerequisites the preservation of historical and cultural heritage is either still in its infancy or simple sidelined.

If you are going to be in Athens before the end of this year, don't miss the exhibition.
