The study also considers more recent invasions for clues as to where the Roman force landed.

402 Grandazzi, Alexandre ALBA LONGA, HISTOIRE D'UNE LÉGENDE Recherches Sur L'Archéologie, La Religion, Les Traditions De L'Ancien Latium
École Française De Rome 2008 2728304122 / 9782728304127 Hardcover Very Good+ with no dust jacket 
2 volume set. Light bumping to extremities else Fine. ; Alba Longa et sa légende demeurent pour la science une énigme : alors qu’elle explore les origines de Rome avec une intensité sans précédent, elle ne sait que penser de cette ville introuvable, de ce lac débordant, de ces forêts ombreuses, de ces rois fantômes. Quel rôle jouèrent les monts Albains dans la culture latiale ? A-t-on eu raison, depuis plus de cinq siècles, de chercher inlassablement Albe, cette cité d’où seraient venus les jumeaux fondateurs de Rome ? Quelles furent les relations entre ce territoire albain et Rome, entre la Ligue latine et la Ville ? Géographie historique et culturelle, sciences de la terre, archéologie, histoire des religions, philologie : le recours à un très large éventail de disciplines aboutit ici à une synthèse, d’où le souci de la réflexivité épistémologique n’est jamais absent. Pour comprendre le légendaire albain, il fallait le replacer dans son cadre. Les anciennes fouilles du XIXe siècle sont donc restituées dans leur contexte. Au-delà de ce qui a été conservé, émerge un continent perdu de la connaissance : des paysages disparus, des sites oubliés, des textes négligés, des rites méconnus et, avec eux, toute la richesse d’une véritable civilisation : en retour on comprendra mieux l’apport des plus récentes découvertes dans ce Latium préromain dont le massif Albain constituait précisément le centre. C’est là, sur le mons Albanus, moderne Monte Cavo, que les Anciens plaçaient Alba Longa et ses rois ; c’est là aussi qu’ avait lieu une grandiose cérémonie religieuse, les Féries Latines, délaissées pourtant par la recherche moderne qui n’a su où situer les mystérieux sacra Albana. Des inventaires précis, des dossiers rassemblant les textes antiques concernés, donnés à chaque fois avec leur traduction, permettent de redonner à ces thèmes toute leur importance, et font de ce livre un exceptionnel outil de travail : la première synthèse française sur cet ancien Latium, naguère dit primitif, objet, depuis trois décennies, d’un grand mouvement international de recherche. Mémoire ou histoire ? À cette interrogation, aujourd’hui omniprésente, ce livre apporte une réponse qui constitue une contribution novatrice au débat actuel sur les origines de Rome. ; 2 Volume Set COMPLETE.

403 Grandazzi, Alexandre; Todd, Jane Marie THE FOUNDATION OF ROME Myth and History
Cornell University Press 1997 080143114X / 9780801431142 Hardcover Very Good+ with no dust jacket 
Top corners lightly bumped. Light general soiling. ; 9.5 x 0.75 x 6.5 Inches; 236 pages; "The Foundation of Rome is one of the few intelligent books on the subject, neither hypercritical nor visionary; its particular strength lies in the skillful interweaving of modern historiography and ideology with ancient history. "--Jerzy Linderski, University of North Carolina. At once a historical essay and a self-conscious meditation on the writing of history, The Foundation of Rome takes as its starting point a series of accounts of Rome's origins offered over the course of centuries. Alexandre Grandazzi places these accounts in their contemporary contexts and shows how the growing sophistication in methodology gradually changed the accepted views of the city's origins. He looks, for example, at the hypercritical philology of the nineteenth century which cast aside everything that could not be verified. He then explains how the increase in archaeological discoveries and changing archaeological techniques influenced the story of Rome's birth. Grandazzi produces a depiction of Rome's origins that is both up-to-date and provocative. His use of scientific parallels in describing changes in the ways texts were analyzed and his broad familiarity with comparative material make his synthesis particularly illuminating, and he writes with clarity, verve, and wit.

Light bumping to spine ends. Light rubbing to boards. Tiny ding near base of spine. Oversized. ; This richly illustrated volume discusses the histories of the port city of Butrint, and its intimate connection to the wider conditions of the Adriatic. In so doing it is a reading, and re-reading, of the site that adds significantly to the study of Mediterranean urban history over the longue durée . Firstly, the book proposes a new paradigm for the development-history of Butrint - based on discussions of the latest archaeological, historical and landscape studies from approximately 20 new excavations and surveys, together covering a temporal arch from prehistory to the early modern period. Secondly, it examines how the perception of the city influenced the archaeological methodology of 20th-century studies of the site, where iteration and reversal were often being applied in equal measure. In this it asks important questions on the management of heritage sites and the contemporary role of archaeological practise. ; Butrint Archaeological Monographs; 250 pages; Overseas Shipping Extra.

Light soiling. Small stamp to base of textblock ("OUP") ; In this collection of essays, an international group of renowned scholars attempt to establish the theoretical basis for studying the ancient and medieval history of the Mediterranean Sea and the lands around it. In so doing they range far afield to other Mediterraneans, real and imaginary, as distant as Brazil and Japan. Their work is an essential tool for understanding the Mediterranean, pre-modern and modern alike. It speaks to ancient and medieval historians, to archaeologists, anthropologists and all historians with environmental interests, and not least to classicists. ; 436 pages

443 Hatzaki, Eleni KNOSSOS The Little Palace
British School at Athens 2005 0904887502 / 9780904887501 Hardcover Near Fine in Near Fine dust jacket 
Bump to top of spine and one corner else Fine. ; BSA Supplementary Volume 38; 273 pages; The Little Palace at Knossos, excavated by Evans and Mackenzie from 1905 - 10, remains the largest neo-palatial building within the Minoan town of Knossos, and to a large extent mirrors the history of the Palace itself. The present work effectively constitutes an excavation report of the LP, publishing for the first time entries from the daybooks of Evans and Mackenzie and many original excavation photographs. The volume provides an extremely detailed architectural account, supported by numerous plans and elevations. It incorporates the results of the 1995 restoration programme carried out by the 23rd Ephoreia and publishes sherd material then collected. A lengthy pottery chapter presents the LP sherd material from Evans's excavations, housed in the Stratigraphical Museum, and also complete vases in Herakleion. Clay tablets and sealings are discussed; small finds presented (many for the first time). The final chapter offers a thorough appraisal of the LP's history, and, in particular, deals with the thorny issue of 're-occupation' and the final destruction of the building in LM IIIA2 (i.e. contemporary with the Palace itself).

Dustjacket has edgewear with chipping and small tears. Upper Corners are bumped. ; In autumn 1977 an unplundered royal tomb containing works of art of astounding richness and exquisite craftsmanship was discovered by Professor Manolis Andronicos at Vergina in Macedonia. The excavator's suggestion that the tomb's occupant was probably Philip, son of Amyntas, king of the Macedonians and Captain General of the united Greeks, created an understandable sensation, and aroused world-wide interest in this extraordinary personality: father of Alexander the Great, one of the greatest Macedonian kings, and also one of the most important political figures of antiquity. In response to this interest nine scholars, all eminent specialists in the history of 4th century Greece, describe the tumultuous career of Philip, re-evaluate his personality and re-examine his political achievements in the light of the recent discoveries. The book closes with an account of the excavation of the fabulous treasures of the royal tombs at Vergina by Professor Andronicos. ; 254 pages
