Book Spoils from Athens
a book on Delphi
another on Kerameikos
a book on the monuments of ancient Greece
which overlay what the buildings used to be like
on top of what can be seen today
and then, when I came home, this (rather weirdly) was waiting for me - which tells about practices in the ancient world and explores the contemporary parallels.
I couldn't wait to start reading, but I am not allowed to say any more until after the publication date on November 4th.
