£38.00

A collection of essays, written by friends and former colleagues, presented to Sir John Boardman and reflecting his enthusiasm and love for the art of Ancient Greece

Overview

The idea of circumnavigation suggested by the title of this volume of essays presented to one of the world’s leading Classical archaeologists conjures up the sense of excitement associated with a voyage of discovery.

Over 40 friends, colleagues and former doctoral students whose work was supervised by John Boardman during his time as Lincoln Professor of Classical Archaeology and Art at Oxford University (1978-1994) have contributed essays on topics close to his heart. Now holding academic posts worldwide, they all recall with pleasure the enthusiasm and encouragement of their former teacher, whose range of publications on the art of ancient Greece is second to none.
