Beginner's Guide to Greek History: Home


This guide is intended to act as a starter kit for those who want to know more about Ancient Greek history, before you begin your dig on Keros. Keros has been actively excavated by the University of Cambridge since 1987, with excavations being run by Professor Colin Renfrew. When you travel there, it will be important to understand the context of the discoveries you find, and so this guide will cover two main topics:

1. Broad history of Greece, and

2. The specific history and finds of Keros.

Hopefully you will find this guide useful in your search!
