Newcastle upon Tyne 2010The idea to hold a conference for postgraduate students and young scholars conducting research on Cypriot Archaeology was inspired in 2001 by Dr Kirsi Lorenz, at the time a PhD student at the University of Cambridge and now currently Research Coordinator at the Cyprus Institute.
Lanham 2010This volume explores the ways local communities perceive, experience, and interact with archaeological sites in Greece, as well as with the archaeologists and government officials who construct and study such places. In so doing, it reveals another side to sites that have been revered as both birthplace of Western civilization and basis of the modern Greek nation.
Liège & Austin 2010For the Aegean Bronze Age gold finger rings immediately call to mind the many gold signet rings and impressions thereof on clay sealings from both Crete and the Greek mainland; such items continue to be found in new excavations. The numerous seal impressions demonstrate that the rings were primarily used for administrative purposes. These are excluded from the present study, which focuses instead on the non-sphragistic decorated finger rings that occur less frequently. The author has attempted to assemble as many examples as possible.
The subject of this study is middle-Minoan fine ware, also known as ‘Kamares’-ware. Earlier scholars were adapting typological and stylistic results for psychological explanations and therefore the meanings of motifs on vases from the point of view of the perceptions of the original artists and the users of their vessels have been misunderstood.
Cambridge 2010The author examines the early history of the biblical Philistines who were among the 'Sea Peoples' who migrated from the Aegean area to the Levant during the early twelfth century BC. Creating an archaeological narrative of the migration of the Philistines, he combines an innovative theoretical framework on the archaeology of migration with new data from excavations in Greece, Turkey, Cyprus, Syria, Lebanon, and Israel and thereby reconstructs the social history of the Aegean migration to the southern Levant.
The Funerary Landscape at Knossos. A Diachronic Study of Minoan Burial Customs with Special Reference to the Warrior Graves
Oxford 2011During the last century’s archaeological investigations of the advanced Bronze Age culture maintained by the so-called Minoans on the island of Crete, a number of tombs dated to the Late Minoan period and containing weapons have been discovered in the surroundings of the site of Knossos. The tombs are not confined to a certain area or cemetery, but are rather dispersed around the Palace and town. Although they are characterised by their weapons, other artefacts – such as bronze vessels and certain pottery types – also distinguish these tombs. The tombs are of three types: chamber tombs with long dromoi, shaft graves and pit-caves.
Bethesda, Maryland 2010The study at hand presents a new evaluation of the data and our understanding of the political landscape in Greece during the Late Bronze Age, especially during the fourteenth and thirteenth centuries BC. Over the last several years there has been a flood of new publications on this topic, in popular magazines, monographs, and scholarly publications.

New York 2010The impact of long-distance exchange on the developing cultures of Bronze Age Greece has been a subject of debate since Schliemann's discovery of the Shaft Graves at Mycenae. In Mycenaean Greece, Mediterranean Commerce, and the Formation of Identity, Bryan E. Burns offers a new understanding of the effects of Mediterranean trade on Mycenaean Greece by considering the possibilities represented by the traded objects themselves in their Mycenaean contexts.
This volume grew out of an interdisciplinary discussion held in the context of the Leverhulme-funded project ‘Changing Beliefs in the Human Body’, through which the image of the body in pieces soon emerged as a potent site of attitudes about the body and associated practices in many periods.
