Pocket Museum: Ancient Greece presents nearly 200 objects currently housed in public collections around the world that offer both context and immediacy to the rich culture of Ancient Greece. From the
bifacial hand tools of the Lower Paleolithic (300,000 years ago) to the Hellenistic Great Altar of Pergamon (second century BCE), the artifacts described here reflect the cyclical ups and downs of prosperity and poverty, and changing cultural and social norms from epoch to epoch. Beautifully illustrated with photographs of each featured object, this is an absorbing introduction to a culture that has exerted an unparalleled influence on Western civilization.
