In Cyprus stone was the primary building material, either as rubble or in a dressed form (called ashlar), since the Neolithic period. Initially stone was used only as rubble but later during the Late Brone Age ashlar stone appeared for the first time on the island.
Palaeomagnetic and anisotropy measurements were carried out on Minoan ash deposits obtained from the deep-sea cores, (V10-50 and V10-58), South Aegean Sea. Three distinct layers have been reported within the ash deposit in core (V10-50). Based primarily on grain-size differences, a link to three separate eruptive phases of Santorini has been suggested.

This paper discusses the Greek Mesolithic record in the light of refinements to the international calibration curve and recent archaeological research. Central to the discussion are the time frame used for this period of Greek prehistory, and the diagnostic potential, or visibility, of Mesolithic stone tools.

Portable X-ray Fluorescence (pXRF) analysis of over 400 samples of Early and Middle Bronze Age Cypriot pottery from four widely separated sites identifies both local and non-local products at each. A series of analyses of sub-sets of the data highlights differences in the clays used at each site and for some distinctive types and wares.

The Hagia Triada Sarcophagus, a painted limestone larnax, has been an enigma in the Minoan artistic canon since the time of its discovery in 1903. It is the only larnax found to date made of limestone, and the only one to contain a series of narrative scenes of Minoan funerary rituals.
In this article the author examines the politics of Mycenaean feasting through an analysis of three Linear B texts from the “Palace of Nestor” at Pylos that concern regional landholdings and contributions to a feast.

‘Minoan’ frescoes from the Egyptian palatial complex at Tell el Dabca have raised many questions regarding the nature and complexity of Egypt-Aegean interrelations. Different dating of the frescoes produced different interpretations of contacts between the Ancient Egyptian court and Cretan polities.

This article describes the initial phase of investigations at Kalamianos, a recently discovered Mycenaean coastal settlement on the Saronic Gulf in the southeastern Corinthia. To date 50 buildings and 120 rooms of Late Helladic IIIB date have been identified at the site, which is unique for the excellent preservation of aboveground architectural remains.

This paper presents an overview of recent discoveries at Liatovouni, a Molossian site in the valley of Konitsa in Epirus. The cemetery comprises 103 tombs dating from the 13th or 12th century through the late 5th or earlier 4th century BC. Special attention is given to the earliest burial, a well-armed male of the late Mycenaean period.
A biographical approach to the study of material culture reveals that an object’s meaning usually varies in different episodes of its life history. This article examines the terracotta statues from the temple at Ayia Irini on Kea in three contexts of experience: (1) their initial context in the Bronze Age temple;

The harbor site of Kommos, Crete, has yielded rich evidence for long-distance exchange in the form of ceramic transport jars of types used not only for distribution within Crete and the Aegean, but also across the eastern Mediterranean.

Sea-level change during the last 18,000 years is a combination of eustatic, isostatic and tectonic contributions. In an effort to minimize the tectonic contributions, our study of sea-level changes in the Aegean Sea within historical times is focused on the aseismic Attico-Cycladic geotectonic zone.
