Kort biografi
John R. (Rigby) Hale born 1951 -- Professor Hale teaches introductory courses on archaeology, as well as more specialized courses on the Bronze Age, the ancient Greeks, the Roman world, Celtic cultures, the Vikings, and nautical and underwater archaeology. An accomplished instructor, Professor Hale is also an archaeologist with more than 30 years of fieldwork experience. He has excavated at a Romano-British town in Lincolnshire, England, and at the Roman Villa of Torre de Palma in Portugal. Among other places, he has carried out interdisciplinary studies of ancient oracle sites in Greece and Turkey, including the famous Delphic oracle, and participated in an undersea search in Greek waters for lost fleets from the time of the Persian Wars.

Very good course in combination with other courses or books on the greek and roman era as this is an overview of the practical side of archaeology and some famous archaeologists and sites that are part of forming the understanding and narrative of the history you've been reading. While this does of course dovetail said history, it's nearly always in the context of the sites and finds. Therefore, it's probably not a good stand-alone.

As soon as I finished, I wanted to start the book over again.

Fast moving with enough detail to intrigue but not so much that it drags. Explains how the development of the navy and naval strategies led to the Athenian dominance of the ancient world. Fast paced, skillful narrative.

Hale is a fabulous guide through Greece and Turkey. As an archaeologist, he brings a deep understanding and appreciation for history, but also for the culture that has shaped that part of the world. The lectures are full of videos and illustrations of the places he speaks of, so this is completely engrossing. As a lecturer, Professor Hale is smooth, friendly, non-academic, and full of good advice for tourists (e.g., wear a hat, watch for those slippery stones). This course will make you want to book your own several weeks long journey to the places he mentions--but of course, in 2016 that part of the world, especially Turkey, is not quite the relaxed, idyllic place it was in 2011 when this course was published. Let's hope that things eventually return to normal and we are able to once again pay our homage in person to the great Greek and Ottoman civilizations.… (mere)
