"Envisioning the Past dissects a range of visual reconstructions of antiquity to expose conventions so widely accepted that their distorting effect has become all but invisible. The reader undergoes a process of re-sensitization that is eye-opening in the most literal sense." Arthur MacGregor, Ashmolean Museum, University of Oxford
