This was made in 1997 so you can kinda forgive the white guilt narrative but it is there and in the mid-to-latter videos it becomes really apparent. As far as completeness of the subject goes, it delves more into the history of archaeologist and the culture they surrounded and how that impacted our understanding of Ancient Greek culture... which is nice. I read a more recent book and that portion wasn't covered as well as Jeremy did, but at the loss of a deeper review of the Ancient Greek culture. To be fair the information just might not have been out yet. You also get a better idea of where the theory starts and where the fact does. While he is explicit on the subject of where his conjecture begins you find some areas where the subject becomes more organic in that it isn't complete. Basically I consider this a great introduction or a great follow-up to a more current edition. He's not unintelligent and the conjecture is fun. Likewise, the history is very on point.
