The book "Ancient Greece: Temples and Sanctuaries" provides a brief but complete analysis and description of the most important Greek archaeological sites. The architecture of the archaic and classical periods is here presented in the most direct possible way: historical details, rich selection of photographs, analytical plans of the monuments, drawings of reconstructions and their juxtaposition with today's appearance and frequent references to mythological sources and ancient Greek ritual practices. There is also information on the museums that accompany the archaeological sites, where these exist, to create perhaps the fullest general archaeological guide that has ever been published in Greece. An experienced team of archaeologists has compiled the presentations of the archaeological sites, arranged along geographical lines: central Greece, the Peloponnese, Macedonia, Epirus, the Aegean, the Ionian and Crete. In the back pages the reader shall also find an extremely useful "Guide to ancient Greek architecture" and a comprehensive architectural glossary. All architecturally and historically important temples are included in this book.
