The Makers of Classical Archaeology: A Reference Work by Linda M. Medwid, with a Foreword by Steven Sidebotham.

DESCRIPTION: Hardcover: 352 pages. Publisher: Humanity Books; (2000). [Published at $119] This one-of-a-kind reference work on the history of classical archaeology spans a time period from the 16th to the 20th century. Covering more than just the well-known "giants" of classical archaeology, this gold mine of information also discusses the achievements of many lesser known archaeologists, as well as scholars from the related fields of art history, ancient numismatics, and epigraphy. The entries highlight the individual's unique contributions to the field and evoke the historical context in which the person lived and worked. Including numerous illustrations, a glossary, and a thorough name and subject index, this well-organized reference guide will delight both the casual browser and the serious scholar.

REVIEW: This wonderful resource for reference and research is a must for the student and scholar, whether archaeologist or general classicist. Write-ups on 119 men and women who are a who's who of some of the most influential individuals in the field of Classical (Greek and Roman) archaeology, specifically the period from the Aegean Bronze Age through the Roman period, well over two millennia. Alphabetically arranged by name with Education, Awards, Excavations, Publications, Sources and more information given. Glossary and Index in back of book.

READER REVIEW:

REVIEW: A select “Who's Who” of largely 19th and 20th century scholars and other individuals who have made a significant contribution to the world of Classical archaeology. Designed as a quick reference it includes details of the person’s education, appointments and awards, excavations, publications and sources. The list of entries is too long to include them all but a short list includes: Bernard Ashmole, Carl W Blegen, Axel Boëthius, Lord Elgin, Duncan Mackenzie, J L Myres, J D S Pendlebury, Gisela M A Richter, J B Ward-Perkins, Mortimer Wheeler. A great reference. Not only informative, but the descriptions of excavations and projects are quite enlightening and entertaining. Each (stand-alone) section is really well adapted for short reads.

I always ship books Media Mail in a padded mailer. This book is shipped FOR FREE via USPS INSURED media mail (“book rate”). All domestic shipments and most international shipments will include free USPS Delivery Confirmation (you might be able to update the status of your shipment on-line at the USPS Web Site and free insurance coverage). A small percentage of international shipments may require an additional fee for tracking and/or delivery confirmation. If you are concerned about a little wear and tear to the book in transit, I would suggest a boxed shipment - it is an extra $1.00. Whether via padded mailer or box, we will give discounts for multiple purchases. International orders are welcome, but shipping costs are substantially higher.

  Most international orders cost an additional $12.99 to $33.99 for an insuredshipment in a heavily padded mailer, and typically includes some form of rudimentary tracking and/or delivery confirmation (though for some countries, this is only available at additional cost). There is also a discount program which can cut postage costs by 50% to 75% if you’re buying about half-a-dozen books or more (5 kilos+).  Rates and available services vary a bit from country to country.  You can email or message me for a shipping cost quote, but I assure you they are as reasonable as USPS rates allow, and if it turns out the rate is too high for your pocketbook, we will cancel the sale at your request.  ADDITIONAL PURCHASES do receive a VERY LARGE discount, typically about $5 per book (for each additional book after the first) so as to reward you for the economies of combined shipping/insurance costs.  Your purchase will ordinarily be shipped within 48 hours of payment.  We package as well as anyone in the business, with lots of protective padding and containers.

 

All of our shipments are sent via insured mail so as to comply with PayPal requirements. We do NOT recommend uninsured shipments, and expressly disclaim any responsibility for the loss of an uninsured shipment. Unfortunately the contents of parcels are easily “lost” or misdelivered by postal employees – even in the USA. That’s why all of our domestic shipments (and most international) shipments include a USPS delivery confirmation tag; or are trackable or traceable, and all shipments (international and domestic) are insured. We do offer U.S. Postal Service Priority Mail, Registered Mail, and Express Mail for both international and domestic shipments, as well United Parcel Service (UPS) and Federal Express (Fed-Ex). Please ask for a rate quotation. We will accept whatever payment method you are most comfortable with. If upon receipt of the item you are disappointed for any reason whatever, I offer a no questions asked return policy. Send it back, I will give you a complete refund of the purchase price (less our original shipping costs).

Most of the items I offer come from the collection of a family friend who was active in the field of Archaeology for over forty years. However many of the items also come from purchases I make in Eastern Europe, India, and from the Levant (Eastern Mediterranean/Near East) from various institutions and dealers. Though I have always had an interest in archaeology, my own academic background was in sociology and cultural anthropology. After my retirement however, I found myself drawn to archaeology as well. Aside from my own personal collection, I have made extensive and frequent additions of my own via purchases on Ebay (of course), as well as many purchases from both dealers and institutions throughout the world – but especially in the Near East and in Eastern Europe. I spend over half of my year out of the United States, and have spent much of my life either in India or Eastern Europe. In fact much of what we generate on Yahoo, Amazon and Ebay goes to support The Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, as well as some other worthy institutions in Europe connected with Anthropology and Archaeology.

I acquire some small but interesting collections overseas from time-to-time, and have as well some duplicate items within my own collection which I occasionally decide to part with. Though I have a collection of ancient coins numbering in the tens of thousands, my primary interest is in ancient jewelry. My wife also is an active participant in the "business" of antique and ancient jewelry, and is from Russia. I would be happy to provide you with a certificate/guarantee of authenticity for any item you purchase from me. There is a $2 fee for mailing under separate cover. Whenever I am overseas I have made arrangements for purchases to be shipped out via domestic mail. If I am in the field, you may have to wait for a week or two for a COA to arrive via international air mail. But you can be sure your purchase will arrive properly packaged and promptly - even if I am absent. And when I am in a remote field location with merely a notebook computer, at times I am not able to access my email for a day or two, so be patient, I will always respond to every email.
