About the Author

William R. Biers is Professor in the Department of Art History and Archaeology at the University of Missouri, Columbia.


"For a history of the art of sculpture, painting, and architecture of Classical Greece and her immediate ancestors, The Archaeology of Greece is an excellent choice."-Archaeology Newsletter (May 2000) "William Biers' first edition of this book served well a generation of scholars and lay people alike as a standard introduction. A second edition of this valuable work is, therefore, most welcomed... The Archaeology of Greece is the best general introduction to the subject. Biers' command of the subject, his engaging writing style, and the wealth of illustrations make this work in its second edition a joy to read and use."-Thomas V. Brisco, Southwestern Journal of Theology (Fall 2001) "Biers' book is an excellent and comprehensive introduction to the subject; this new edition retains its original virtues of reliability, clarity and readability, and adds to its already generous quota of illustrations. It should continue to be a standard textbook for years to come."-Ruth Westgate, Classical Bulletin (Vol. 79. No. 2, 2003) "Well-written and exceptionally well-illustrated... An invaluable guidebook for people who want to visit Greece and understand what it is they are seeing." -Times Literary Supplement (reviewing the first edition) "Teachers, students, and travelers should be grateful to author and press for the timely production of a well-balanced, informative, and stimulating introduction."-Archaeology (reviewing the first edition) "An excellent book which should find a ready audience among teachers and students as the standard handbook for classes in Greek archaeology."-Classical Outlook (reviewing the first edition)
