'Burial and Ancient Society by Ian Morris is an important book ... Unconvinced by the arguments for very rapid population growth and population decline in Attica ... Morris argues that the evidence reflects changes in the proportion of the total population buried in archaeologically visible ways, rather than changes in the size of the population ... No doubt the debate will continue, but this is a significent contribution to it.' Greece & Rome
