Connecting a City to Its Navy: The Long Walls of Athens

"Connecting a City to Its Navy" is an interdisciplinary study which systematically analyzes the wealth of ancient written and physical evidence for the preeminent example of a uniquely Greek class of ancient fortifications, the Long Walls of Athens. Hitherto, scholars have used only the ancient written evidence to consider these structures from the narrow perspective of their revolutionary strategic purpose. This project breaks new ground both because it considers the whole range of historical and architectural issues to which the Long Walls contribute and because it incorporates the now-abundant but largely unknown evidence of the excavated remains.
