Summary
"Presented as a kind of historical detective story, Travelling heroes draws upon archaeology, ancient texts, and new discoveries to develop a fresh and provocative thesis: that migrants from the Greek island of Euboea settled in specific places both in the Near East and in Italy and that what they found there helped shape their most distinctive myths"--Jacket flap
