Rather, the book examines the entire area around the Bay of Navarino, where "Pylos" in its several and shifting manifestations over time existed; the book also extends its coverage in places to most of Western Messenia.
Although Sandy Pylos is a publication of the Pylos Regional Archaeological Project, which from 1991-1995 conducted a campaign of intensive archaeological survey in Western Messenia, it is not the final publication of the project, as the lack of footnotes and other academic impedimenta makes clear.
As with the previous "Focus" on the Battle of Sphacteria, the aficionados of military history will want considerably more discussion, but what is provided will probably be sufficient for the general reader.
