Barringer 2018

 Judith M. Barringer's The Art and Archaeology of Ancient Greece (Cambridge University Press 2015) is  a “lovely” introduction to the art and archaeology of ancient Greece, with its many beautiful illustrations and fine layout. One member noted that “the writing is clear and engaging, communicating a wide range of issues in the study of art and archaeology, including how the excavation history of a site often shapes later interpretations, questions of repatriation and provenance,” while another commented that the book was “innovative” and would be “appealing to today’s students.” It was agreed that Barringer’s textbook is an outstanding introduction for students who possess little or no background in ancient Greek art.
