Ionia and the East

Nature volume 81, pages 9495 (22 July 1909) | Download Citation



THE author of this book aims at solving the interesting problem of the origin of Hellenic civilisation in the Grecian colony of Ionia, in western Asia Minor. He utilises, in a masterly manner, the results of the extensive archæological researches that have been carried out within the last thirty years in south-eastern Europe. The excavations of Schliemann, Evans, and numerous other workers in this field have completely revolutionised our ideas about the origin of that early Grecian culture to which modern European civilisation owes so much.
