The Sea Peoples, from cuneiform tablets to carbon dating

PLOS ONE (June 8, 2011)

Διαβάστε το άρθρο

Here, we report a stratified radiocarbon-based archaeology with anchor points in ancient epigraphic-literary sources, Hittite-Levantine-Egyptian kings and astronomical observations to precisely date the Sea People event. By confronting historical and science-based archaeology, we establish an absolute age range of 1192–1190 BC for terminal destructions and cultural collapse in the northern Levant.

Towards an absolute chronology for the Aegean Iron Age: new radiocarbon dates from Lefkandi, Kalapodi and Corinth

PLOS ONE (December 26, 2013)

The small number of radiocarbon dates available for this time span is not sufficient to establish an absolute chronological sequence. Here we present a new set of short-lived radiocarbon dates from the sites of Lefkandi, Kalapodi and Corinth in Greece.

A Late Bronze Age ship from Liman Tepe with reference to the Late Bronze Age ships from İZMIR / Bademgediği Tepesi and Kos / Seraglio

Oxford Journal of Archaeology 36.1 (2017): 61-70

In this article, a Mycenaean pottery sherd from Liman Tepe is discussed. The piece, which was locally produced, probably belongs to a ring-based crater (FS 281). Comparisons with other, similar sherds suggest that warriors aboard a ship are depicted.

Meaningful materials? Bone artefacts and symbolism in the Early Bronze Age Aegean

Oxford Journal of Archaeology 36.1 (2017): 43-59

Early Bronze Age southern Aegean mortuary assemblages have yielded three distinctive classes of bone artefact. Comparison with contemporary unworked bone assemblages and contextually or formally related objects in other materials reveals complex cultural associations, the symbolic meaning of which is explored through heuristic use of ethnographic analogues.

Variability of ceramic production and consumption on the Greek mainland during the middle stages of the Late Bronze Age: the waterpots from the Menelaion, Sparta

Oxford Journal of Archaeology 36.3 (2017): 243-266

The study highlights survival of pottery traditions with roots in the Middle Helladic period well into the Late Bronze Age, a fact that has not received appropriate attention in the scholarly discourse. It captures the very last stage of their existence, as just a few decades later the production and consumption are entirely dominated by Mycenaean pottery.

Early ceramics in Anatolia: implications for the production and use of the earliest pottery. The evidence from Boncuklu Höyük

Cambridge Archaeological Journal 27.2 (May 2017): 351-369

Fragments of possible fired clay found at Boncuklu Höyük, central Turkey, appear to derive from rudimentary vessels, despite the later ninth- and early eighth-millennium cal. bc and thus ‘Aceramic’ dates for the site. This paper will examine the evidence for such fired clay vessels at Boncuklu and consider their implications as examples of some of the earliest pottery in Anatolia.

Contrasting histories in Early Bronze Age Aegean: uniformity, regionalism and the resilience of societies in the northeast Peloponnese and central Crete

Cambridge Archaeological Society 27.3 (August 2017): 479-494

Late Early Bronze Age (EB IIB–III, 2500–2000 bc ) evidence from the northeast Peloponnese and central Crete present two coeval sequences of events with very different societal outcomes. By drawing on resilience theory and the model of adaptive cycles, this article explores when and why the paths of mainland Greece and Crete diverged around 2200 bc, leading to an eventually destabilizing change on the mainland and a more sustainable one on Crete.

Opium or oil? Late Bronze Age Cypriot Base Ring juglets and international trade revisited

Antiquity 90.354 (2016): 1552-1561

Διαβάστε το άρθρο

The Base Ring juglets of Late Bronze Age Cyprus have long been associated with opium due to their hypothetical resemblance to inverted poppy heads. Analysis of organic residues on Base Ring juglets from Cyprus and Israel, however, showed no trace of opium; instead, the vessels had contained a variety of perfumed oils.

Building the Labyrinth: Arthur Evans and the construction of Minoan civilization

American Journal of Archaeology 122.1 (January 2018): 5-32

This study provides a detailed exploration of the genesis of concepts such as the Minoan palace (or palace-sanctuary), the priest-king, the mother goddess, and the essentially European (non-“Oriental”) character of the Minoans. By situating these concepts within Evans’ narrative project, I try to demonstrate that these are not objective interpretations that flow obviously from the data but rather began life as preconceptions formed by Evans as part of his Eurocentric agenda, well before the start of his excavations at Knossos.
