For the first time in full colour with amplified and detailed maps. Paola Pugsley is a Cambridge-based professional archaeologist who often works on location in Greece and Turkey. -- "Often plagiarised by other guide writers, Blue Guides have always been a gold standard for accuracy and depth" Daily Telegraph.

Our excellent value books literally don't cost the earth
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.
