THE BATTLE OF MARATHON IN HISTORY AND MEMORY will take my interpretation of Archaic Greek warfare to a general audience. In the course of telling an exciting story about the famous battle in 490 BCE, I will show how Greeks changed from fighting in fluid and disorganized ways to fighting in the exclusive hoplite phalanx familiar from Thucydides and Xenophon. This project will build on my earlier articles as well as on research conducted by others studying Archaic poetry, armor, and vase paintings. It will draw on interviews with historical reenactors as well as on tests in the Molnar Human Performance Laboratory at Furman University. The book will be published by Yale University Press in its "Yale Library of Military History" series.
