Studies in Classical Archaeology

Volume III
Reception of Classical Art - an Introduction
edited by D.C. Kurtz

Serendipity lies behind this modest publication. A series of lectures took place in the autumn of 2003 on The Reception of Classical Art designed to complement two options in the Master of Studies in Classical Archaeology. It was decided to publish the lectures as delivered, without footnotes, but with bibliographies specifically chosen for our students. The book is dedicated to "the first cohort of students in the undergraduate degree course in the History of Art, October 2004".
