    Urns and jars inspired by Greek models are a staple in all types of public and private spaces. The meander patterns, palmettes, and other florals that adorn ancient vases recur in all kinds of modern objects. And the concept of the hero, or superman, first formulated and given visual form in ancient Greece is integral to Western culture. The Protogeometric style (or "Proto-Geometric") is a style of Ancient Greek pottery led by Athens produced between roughly and BC, the period of the Greek Dark Ages and the beginning of the Archaic period. After the collapse of the Mycenaean-Minoan Palace culture and the ensuing Greek Dark Ages, the Protogeometric style emerged around the mid 11th century BCE as the first expression.

    The stylistic history of Greek vases has been demonstrated in other Thames & Hudson books by John Boardman. Here he sketches that history but goes on to explore the many other matters that make the study so fruitful. He describes the methods of making and decorating vases, the processes of identifying the artists, life in the potters' quarter. Sir John Boardman—author of Greek Art, Athenian Black Figure Vases and Early Greek Vase Painting—is Mr. Greek Vases, and his masterful and classy explications of what might in .

    Offering a survey of Greek vases, this book sketches their stylistic history. It explores the process of identifying artists; the methods of making and decorating the vases and the problems in doing so; the life of the potter; the pots' dissemination beyond Greece; and their functions in life, cult and as messengers of style and subject. Greek history is not the history of a single state. When Aristotle composed his work upon the constitutions of the Greek states, he found it necessary to extend his survey to no less that states. Greek history is thus concerned with more than separate and independent political communities. Nor is it even the history of a single country.
