Transport stirrup jars from the southern Levant: New light on commodity exchange in the Eastern Mediterranean

American Journal of Archaeology 115.3 (2011): 355-382.

This article examines the issue of the distribution of transport stirrup jars found in the Late Bronze Age Levant. These vessels, representing long-range commodity exchange, are presumed to be largely of Cretan origin according to both their appearance and previous archaeometric analyses.

A Bronze Age ship from Ashkelon with particular reference to the Bronze Age ship from Bademgediği Tepe

American Journal of Archaeology 115.3 (2011): 483-488.

Reexamination of a well-known pictorial sherd from Ashkelon demonstrates that it is almost a century older than originally thought; it is in fact a 13th-century import from Mycenaean Greece rather than a local 12th-century Philistine product. The type of vessel to which the sherd belongs is discussed and a possible date is offered.

Egyptian Amethyst in the Bronze Age Aegean

Journal of Ancient Egyptian Interconnections 1.2 (April 2009): 9-25.

Though the fashion for amethyst in Egypt and the Near East had, by the mid-eighteenth century bc, dried up along with the Wadi el-Hudi mine, the stone’s popularity persisted in the Aegean well into the twelfth century.

Ahhotep’s Silver Ship Model: The Minoan Context

Journal of Ancient Egyptian Interconnections 2.3 (August 2010): 31-41.

The tomb of Ahhotep (I) contained two metal ship models—one gold, the other silver—and a four-wheeled carriage. The models are anomalous in time and material. While the gold model represents a typical papyri form wood- planked Nile vessel, the silver model finds its closest parallels

Insights into Egyptian Horus Falcon Imagery by Way of Real Falcons and Horus Falcon Influence in the Aegean in the Middle Bronze Age: Part II

Journal of Ancient Egyptian Interconnections 3.3 (August 2011): 39-52.

Falcons were a part of everyday life in the Aegean but also appear in Minoan-Mycenaean art in cult capacity as attending a goddess, being the possible ba bird of a deceased person, and in symbolic ornaments of falcon shape with distinct falcon attributes of sharp talons, hooked beaks, and neck curls.

Insights into Egyptian Horus Falcon Imagery by Way of Real Falcons and Horus Falcon Influence in the Aegean in the Middle Bronze Age: Part I

Journal of Ancient Egyptian Interconnections 3.3 (August 2011): 27-38.

The falcon is the most frequently represented bird in Egyptian art. The discovery that falcons were depicted more often than realized in Aegean art, during the author’s studies of Aegean faunal iconography, prompted this article which delves into their natural history as a way to understand the falcon gods of Egypt as well as Egyptian and Aegean falcon depiction

Late Pleistocene/Early Holocene seafaring in the Aegean: new obsidian hydration dates with the SIMS-SS method

Journal of Archaeological Science 38.9 (September 2011): 2475-2479.

Archaeological evidence regarding the presence of obsidian in levels that antedate the food production stage could have been the result of usage or intrusion of small obsidian artifacts from overlying Neolithic layers. The new obsidian hydration dates presented below employing the novel SIMS-SS method, offers new results of absolute dating concordant with the excavation data. Our contribution sheds new light on the Late Pleistocene/Early Holocene exploitation of obsidian sources on the island of Melos in the Cyclades reporting dates c. 13th millennium - end of 10th millennium B.P.

Domestic and wild ungulate dietary traits at Kouphovouno (Sparta, Greece): implications for livestock management and paleoenvironment in the Neolithic

Journal of Archaeological Science 38.3 (March 2011): 528-537.

The objective for this study is to explore interspecific variations in domestic and wild ungulate diets and management at the Neolithic site of Kouphovouno (Sparta, southern Greece). We tested four hypotheses related to environmental context and livestock management using, for the first time, a combination of mesowear and microwear analyses on a Neolithic site.
