Following Oliver Dickinsons successful The Aegean Bronze Age, this excellent textbook is an up-to-date synthesis of the period between the collapse of the Bronze Age civilization in the thirteenth and twelfth centuries B.C., right up to the rise of the Greek civilization in the eight century B.C..

With chapter bibliographies, distribution maps and illustrations, Dickinsons detailed examination of material and archaeological evidence argues that many characteristics of Ancient Greece developed in the Dark Ages. He also includes up-to-date coverage of the "Homeric question".

This highly informative text focuses on:

* the reasons for the Bronze age collapse which brought about the Dark Age

* the processes that enabled Greece to emerge from the Dark Age

* the degree of continuity from the Dark Age to later times.

Dickinson has provided an invaluable survey of this period that will not only be useful to specialists and undergraduates in the field, but that will also prove highly popular with the interested general reader.
