John K. Davies

British Academy

This chapter takes a systematic look at one particular sub-discipline, Greek history, from their predecessors, who had created and adorned the heroic age of historical scholarship on the history of ancient Greece. It tries to describe different innovations in studying Greek history as lucidly and as dispassionately as possible. It largely eschews personalities in favour of formats and themes. The second section surveys the main genres of scholarship historically. The third section attempts to identify the main directions and problems which preoccupy scholars at present. The last section presents four case-studies of new material.

Keywords:   Greek history, ancient Greece, cultural history, Classical lands
