Greek Art and Archaeology by John Griffiths Pedley


Greek Art and Archaeology by John Griffiths Pedley

Greek Art and Architecture explores the development of Greek art across three centuries. This extensively illustrated and clearly written text is accessible to introductory-level students. The major categories of Greek Art and architecture- including sculpture, vase painting, wall painting, and metal work in a historical, social, and archaeological context, are explored.


Reading this book is like having a wonderful conversation with a learned and enthusiastic teacher who has a deep appreciation for the Classical world. Mary Ann Eaverly, University of Florida This text is as much a cultural history text as it is an art and archaeology one-which is exactly why I use it. Paul Scotton, California State University, Long Beach

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

I love ‘LoveReading 4 kids’ because they let you read and learn things you’d never dreamed of learning before.

Emily Horncastle – age 11

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

We love Lovereading as my 5 year old loves to read new books before anyone else has a chance, she says it makes reading exciting!

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.
