About the Edition

The 1931 excavation season at Olynthus, Greece, changed how archaeologists study material culture, and was the nexus of one of the most egregious cases of plagiarism in the history of classical archaeology. Kaiser draws on the private scrapbook that budding archaeologist Mary Ross Ellingson compiled during that dig, and recounts how the unearthing of private homes emerged as a means to examine the day-to-day of ancient life in Greece. He shows that David Robinson stole Ellingson"s words and insights for his own, and many fellow academics were complicit in the theft.
