In July of 1875, as Arthur Evans and his brother Lewis made plans to travel through Bosnia-Herzegovina on foot, revolution came to the Balkans. By the time the two Brits arrived a month later, full insurrection was underway and they found themselves ...
not only travelers in a remote, unexplored land, but witnesses to history. Rich in its reflections on Bosnian culture, landscape, and history, Evans' account serves also as a window into one of the country's most important social upheavals. Part travelogue, part first-person journalism, this is living, breathing history at its best. Best known for discovering and naming the Bronze Age civilization of the Minoans, British archaeologist SIR ARTHUR JOHN EVANS (1851-1941) also wrote Cretan Pictographs and Prae-Phoenician Script, The Mycenaean Tree and Pillar Cult, and The Palace of Minos.
