About this product
- DescriptionThe archaeologist Edward Dodwell (c.1776-1832) published this two-volume work in 1819. Elected an horary member of Berlin's Royal Academy in 1816, Dodwell had been educated at Cambridge, toured France and Germany, and lived in Rome and Naples. Writing extensively on Greek antiquity, he made three tours of Greece, where he produced hundreds of drawings, recording in particular the Athenian Acropolis and the city walls of Argos. He also collected coins and discovered or acquired many valuable artefacts, tably bronzes and vases. Including reproductions of his accomplished illustrations, the volumes cover his visits to such places as Corfu, Mount Parnassus, Thebes and Attica, and to the Echis ruins and the pass of Thermopylae, also taking in the artefacts of Corinth. His detailed account, mixing travelogue with serious scholarship, remains of interest and relevance to classical archaeologists.
