Product Description

About the Author

Paola Pugsley is a professional archaeologist with a particular interest in ancient technologies, particularly woodworking, the subject of her doctorate in 2002. Alongside her own academic research she is keen to foster a deeper understanding of history and its material manifestation (i.e. archaeology) by visitors enjoying a holiday in the sun. This new Blue Guide to Crete has been written very much with that approach in mind, visiting and revisiting the island in its furthest recesses both as an archaeologist and as a tourist. In the summer Paola can be found working on excavations in Greece, Anatolia and Mesopotamia.

Format: Paperback
Just back from a couple of weeks in E Crete. Visited a whole range of places from Knossos through to mountain villages. This guide could rarely be faulted - a thorough description/explanation of most of the places we visited. Recommended if you are a 'serious'tourist

For those wanting a guide to the history of Crete, this is an excellent starting point. This probably will fulfill all requirements other than those of an academic.

5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Mrs M Rogers on 28 Sep 2011
Format: Paperback
I was disappointed with this new edition, and much prefer the older one by Pat Cameron. Several of the smaller sites, which are often well worth visiting, have been dropped from this edition and directions for some of the important sites, such as Gortyna are inadequate. The writer gives the impression of having been in Crete for just a few months, is conscientious, but lacks real local knowledge. It seems as in this editon is trying to be more like a Rough Guide, but can't compete with them for practical information. The Blue Guides have always been the best guides to the archaeological and historic sites - but this edition is not as good as its predecessors.

Bought this to complement a much less detailed guide and more pictorial guide. Whilst we found it slightly difficult to use the guide to help choose where to visit, the level of information on individual sites was excellent. A good example was Knossos, where we declined the offers of the tour guides on site and had an excellent self-guided tour using the book - ensuring we saw and understood all the key features at our own pace. So an excellent detailed guide to help get the most out of individual attractions.
