'Studies of the "reception" of the ancient world are in vogue at the moment, and this chronology of "imaginings" of Antiquity is an important study in its own right.' - Campbell Price, Ancient Egypt; In Antiquity Imagined, Derricourt expertly excavates the rubbish of bad history and restores the fragments to pristine falsity- a remarkable labour, and a fascinating story' - Dominic Green, Minerva Magazine
