The first important contribution to the Grotto in the study of history of Ancient Greece was an article criticizing the book by William Mitford History of Greece, published in the 'Westminster Review' ( 'Westminster Review'). Then Grotto recognized as an authoritative scholar, but in the coming years (1833-1841) he, being a member of the House of Commons, had no opportunity to do science. Therefore, the long-awaited first volume of History of Greece (History of Greece) appeared only in 1846, and the twelfth (and final) volume was published ten years later. History of the Grotto was a success, and today, some scientists believe that it is the best history of Greece in English, although many of its parts are obsolete in light of recent discoveries in epigraphy and Papyrology. In 1860 the Grotto was the treasurer of the University College in London, in 1868 - its President, and from 1862 until his death served as the Vice-Chancellor, University of London. Died Grotto in London June 18, 1871.
