Richard Berry Seager : Archaeologist and Proper Gentleman, Hardback Book

Richard Berry Seager : Archaeologist and Proper Gentleman Hardback


An examination of the life of Richard Seager is important for two reasons.

First, it provides a glimpse of a character of a member of the second generation of researchers to work in Cretan archaeology and, second, Seager and his generation helped form our own preconceptions about the early history of Greece.

His underlying thesis, that the Early Minoan society was the first European civilization, thus the foundation of Greek and later Western history, is considered valid today.
