This book presents the first in-depth, comparative study of household economy and settlement in three micro-regions: the Mediterranean (Sicily), Central Europe (Hungary), and Northern Europe (South Scandinavia).

POCA 2007: Postgraduate Cypriot Archaeology Conference The 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.

Archaeology in Situ: Sites, Archaeology, and Communities in Greece

Lanham 2010

Archaeology in Situ: Sites, Archaeology, and Communities in Greece This 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.

Aegean and Cypro-Aegean Non-Sphragistic Decorated Gold Finger Rings of the Bronze Age

Liège & Austin 2010

Aegean and Cypro-Aegean Non-Sphragistic Decorated Gold Finger Rings of the Bronze Age For 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.

Ornament und Bedeutung. Zur Motivik mittelminoischer Feinkeramik

Ornament und Bedeutung. Zur Motivik mittelminoischer Feinkeramik

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.

The Philistines and Aegean Migration at the End of the Late Bronze Age

Cambridge 2010

The Philistines and Aegean Migration at the End of the Late Bronze Age The 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 2011

The Funerary Landscape at Knossos. A Diachronic Study of Minoan Burial Customs with Special Reference to the Warrior Graves During 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.

Over the last several years there has been a flood of new publications on this topic, in popular magazines, monographs, and scholarly publications.

Mycenaean Greece, Mediterranean Commerce, and the Formation of Identity

New York 2010

Mycenaean Greece, Mediterranean Commerce, and the Formation of Identity The 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.

Body Parts and Bodies Whole. Changing Relations and Meanings

Oxford 2010

Body Parts and Bodies Whole. Changing Relations and Meanings

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.

Textile Terminologies in the Ancient Near East and Mediterranean from the Third to the First Millennnia BC

Oxford 2010

Textile Terminologies in the Ancient Near East and Mediterranean from the Third to the First Millennnia BC Written sources from the ancient Near East and eastern Mediterranean, from the third to the first millennia BC, provide a wealth of terms for textiles. The twenty-two chapters in the present volume offer the first comprehensive survey of this important material, with special attention to evidence for significant interconnections in textile terminology among languages and cultures, across space and time. For example, the Greek word for a long shirt, khiton, ki-to in Linear B, derives from a Semitic root, ktn. But the same root in Akkadian means linen, in Old Assyrian a garment made of wool, and perhaps cotton, in many modern languages.

The Archaeology of Measurement. Comprehending Heaven, Earth and Time in Ancient Societies

Cambridge 2010

The Archaeology of Measurement. Comprehending Heaven, Earth and Time in Ancient Societies The construction of formal measurement systems underlies the development of science, technology, economy and new ways of understanding and explaining the world. Human societies have developed such systems in different ways, in different places and at different times, and recent archaeological investigations highlight the importance of these activities for fundamental aspects of human life.

The Collapse of Palatial Society in LBA Greece and the Postpalatial Period

Oxford 2010

The Collapse of Palatial Society in LBA Greece and the Postpalatial Period This monograph deals with the destruction and disappearance of the palaces and palace societies of Late Bronze Age or Mycenaean Greece c.1200 and aspects of continuity and change in the subsequent Postpalatial period of the twelfth and eleventh centuries (LHIIIC). It is primarily concerned with mainland Greece and the islands, excluding Crete. An emphasis in this work, where analysis of the Greek material itself or theories based upon it is attempted, is the potential for differences between palatial and non-palatial areas.
