This work explores the visual interplay between archaeology and photography via excavations of the Greek Neolithic settlement of Dispilio. The book tackles archaeological practice on site, the microcosms of excavation, and the interaction between people and “things”.



‘….today some archaeologists have transformed themselves into artists exploiting the visual grammar of the past decades.’ - Dragos Gheorghiu (2014): Antiquity

'Ifantidis [presents] a collection of photographs that document the ephemeral, tangential notes from the excavations at Dispilio. In this he repositions the photographer not as a passive observer, but as an active participant in the investigation of the past.' - Colleen Morgan (2014): Journal of Contemporary Archaeology
