Just a note on Greek statuary. I was taught in the late 80's that statues were brightly painted. Have not seen the Smithsonian article, so it may go a great deal beyond what was previously known.

POLL DESCRIPTION

Writing in Slingshot 253, Mike Tittensor answers a criticism that his article referenced on "older works":

Any reading list that does not start with the original significant historians or archaeologists is so much snake oil and unworthy of being treated seriously.
