Reviews

'This is an amazing collection of essays and an astonishing illumination of what was happening in Central Europe during the years of Greek civilization. The word 'barbarian' will never lose its detrimental quality, but at least, thanks to this volume, one is better informed as to what was really happening.' Duane W. Roller, AHB Online Reviews
'... the volume is well-planned and consistent. It will be a welcome addition to university and personal libraries. There is much dialogue between individual chapters, and in general they are well-written and clear with a large number of illustrations.' Bryn Mawr Classical Review
'This collection will prove especially useful for readers approaching these topics for the first time, while specialists too will find much of interest.' The Journal of Hellenic Studies
