Changing Gears is the journal of a research-travel odyssey undertaken in eastern Greece and western Turkey during summer, 1984. Fieldwork was conducted on the Greek islands of Lesbos, Limnos, and Chios and along the adjacent Turkish coast from the Dardanelles south to Kusadasi as well as a challenging journey from the village of Troezen through the mountainous Peloponnesus of southeastern Greece to Athens, a route traveled by the Greek hero, Theseus. Included are illustrations and descriptions of ancient Argos, Athens, Corinth, Eleusis, Epidaurus, Isthmia, Marathon, Megara, Mycenae, Tiryns, and Troezen in Greece; and Ephesus, Pergamum, Sardis, Smyrna, and Troy in Turkey.
