Argos and the Argolid, first released in 1972, provides a examine of the historical past and achievements of the Argives, who've hitherto been principally missed: in part simply because Classical Argos is overshadowed by means of the legends of an prior millennium, and partially simply because a lot of her monuments and documents were lost.

Richard Tomlinson describes the zone, and considers the connection among the Argives who claimed Dorian descent and people whose ancestors have been potentially the population of the area throughout the Bronze Age. specifically, he emphasises the Argives’ function as a ‘third strength’ in mainland Greek heritage, the place they challenged the supremacy of the Spartans in Peloponnesian affairs.

This thorough remedy is meant to right the standard bias in favour of the higher documented affairs of Athens and Sparta. It contains an review of Argive army and political service provider, and in their contribution to the humanities of old Greece.
