Rhodes with Symi & Chalki

352pp (3 island maps, 5 site plans, 24 colour photographs) ISBN 9781907859236

Rhodes, with Symi and Chalki (Volume 6) has always been our largest and most popular volume in the series.  In response to this we have undertaken a complete revision of the text, in collaboration with the experts of the Archaeological Service of the Dodecanese. We have also given the book a new colour cover as well as twenty-four, fine, colour illustrations inside.

Still the same level of detail; still the same dimensions; but a little more lavish to the eye, and with all the latest finds, changes and developments on the island included. This is a handsome addition to the series - and may be the first of more new versions of the other islands.
