Greek Archaeology and Greek History

(p.45) Chapter 2 Greek Archaeology and Greek History
Archaeology and the Emergence of Greece

Anthony Snodgrass

Edinburgh University Press

At certain points, the disciplines of history and archaeology converge; and some of the closest rapprochements have traditionally taken place in the field of Classics. This chapter deals with one quite specific form of close relationship that can exist only between certain kinds of historical and archaeological approaches. The chapter turns to the topic of early Greek colonisation: a suitable subject in that, today, it is recognised as involving archaeological evidence to at least the same degree as historical, but is yet of prime historical importance. For the nature, causation and dating of the earlier Greek colonies, the evidence from the excavation of the relevant sites has long been accepted as fundamental. It is natural to begin with the first Greek colonies in Sicily.
