Early Greek history as found in the textbooks leaves spurious “dark age” gaps where the evidence fails to match historians’ fixed ideas. Dramatic claims regarding everything from the Trojan War to the “Mask of Agamemnon” are argued in detail from both an archaeological and a literary perspective, unraveling historical conundrums that have stumped classicists for generations.
