In this richly illustrated account, Charles Henry Hanson covers the history of Greece and its antiquities. As noted in the preface this book “is an endeavor to combine with a description of the country and of its principal sites and ancient remains a sketch of the events which made those places memorable - to localize, as it were, something of the vast mass of traditions and historic records associated with Hellas from a period long anterior to the birth of Christ down to the present day. ”
The places described include Thessaly, Aetolia, Acarnania, the Ionian Islands, Thermopylae, Phocis, Delphi, Boeotia, Euboea, Athens, Aegina, Megara, Corinth, Sicyon, Argolis, Mycenae, Argos, Tiryns, Nafplio, Laconia, Sparta, Messenia, Arcadia, Elis, Olympia and Achaia.
