Akropolis (German language edition)
Einfuhrung in das Museum und die Denkmäler
95 colour illustrations. Distributed by University of Exeter Press.
Designed to be a useful travel companion, this book’s descriptions and interpretative analyses help show the monuments in a new way, through an understanding of the historical, artistic and political events that contributed to their creation.
Through the text and the illustrations we get to know the gods and heroes who were worshipped on the Acropolis, the leaders who envisaged the major projects, the artists who brought them to fruition, as well as the innovative ideas they applied, and the Athenian citizens who admired and enjoyed these achievements.
