The Archaeology of Ancient Greece
When most people think of Greece, visions of the Acropolis towering over the city of Athens come to mind. The Acropolis, while one of the most important and beautiful archaeological sites in Greece, is by no means the only archaeological site in Greece. A wealth of other locations exists throughout the Mainland, the Peloponnesos, the Cyclades, Crete, and Ionia (the western shore of modern Turkey). The purpose of this site is to familiarize viewers with those other, less visited archaeological sites, as well as provide them with information on the history and culture of ancient Greek civilization.
