The Classical Review, Vol. 17 free pdf Excerpt from The Classical Review, Vol. 17 Of the pamphlets published in the last twelve months, two claim attention as proceeding from scholars who hold high positions in the classical world, and who have had the problems of the classical education of to-day brought in different ways under their notice. 'Archaeology in Schools' by Professor P. Gardner and Mr. J. L. Myres' is a valuable and timely contribution to a department of classical instruction which has but lately won its way to proper recognition. The text is from the pen of Prof. Gardner, a dissentient opinion of Mr. Myres upon a particular point being recorded in a note. It consists partly of advice to classical teachers upon the best mode of introducing archaeology into their instruction, a province in which Prof. Gardner's knowledge and experience enable him to speak with weight, partly of a more general treatment of principles and methods. Here also there is much that is valuable. Prof. Gardner is fully alive to the defects of modern classical education. He says: 'Classical Archaeology in Schools, by Percy Gardner, Litt. D. Lincoln and Merton Professor of Classical Archaeology in the University of Oxford- with an Appendix containing list of Archaeological Apparatus by Professor P.Gardner and J.L. Myres, M.A., Student of Christ Church, Oxford. (Printed by request of a Committee of the Head Masters Conference.) Oxford, Clarendon Press.1902. Pp.35. Is. net. 'In my experience young men coming to the Universities from the great schools are remarkably deficient in the power of observing accurately and recording their observations. And they are usually entirely unversed in the weighing of evidence or discerning degrees of probability, (p.16). He recognises, as many do not, the high qualifications demanded by elementary teaching. 'As is the case in many other subjects, these most elementary teachings are perhaps the most difficult, and require the greatest care and skill' (p.11). The various series of illustrated classics he judges as follows, 'All that I have seen are incorrect or inadequate, and tend to mislead as much as to help. the illustrated classics of which mention has been made are produced with a quite insufficient knowledge, and are in most cases full of bad blunders and show great want of judgement' (p.7). Coming from one in Prof. Gardner's position this is very depressing. I wonder if he realised when he wrote it how very depressing it is. Let us hope that the judgment is somewhat too severe. But if not, it rests with archaeologists to find a remedy. We do not indeed expect Prof. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
