This volume brings together papers that discuss social change. The main focus is on the Early Helladic III to Late Helladic I period in southern Greece, but also touches upon the surrounding islands. This specific timeframe enables us to consider how mainland societies recovered from a ‘crisis’ and how they eventually developed into the differentiated, culturally receptive and competitive social formations of the early Mycenaean period.
L'émeri, le σμύρις grec, est une roche abrasive par excellence. D’après les sources écrites, il est ex-ploité aux époques archaïque et classique. Ce livre, s’intéressant au monde égéen du Néolithique et de l’âge du Bronze (VIe-IIe millénaires av. J.-C.), tente de retracer les origines de cette exploitation et d’en éclairer les modalités. Ce travail propose un outil méthodologique adapté pour l’étude de ce ma-tériel fondé sur une documentation variée et une approche pluridisciplinaire.

This volume, the first of two dealing with the Early Iron Age deposits from the Athenian Agora, publishes the tombs from the end of the Bronze Age through the transition from the Middle Geometric to Late Geometric period. An introduction deals with the layout of the four cemeteries of the period, the topographical ramifications, periodization, and a synthesis of Athens in the Early Iron Age.

From the Foundations to the Legacy of Minoan Archaeology provides a range of new approaches to key issues in Minoan archaeology, inspired by Professor Keith Branigan’s long-standing contribution to the archaeology of Bronze Age Crete.
Although architecture provides a decisive frame-work for many forms of social interaction, thus preconfiguring them, and simultaneously represents an expression and hence a product of social conventions, few connections have thus far been made between the scholarly study of architecture and the social history of Mycenaean Greece. The present study attempts to fill this research gap with respect to the palace complexes of the Peloponnese.
Οι εργασίες του Συνεδρίου με θέμα «Κυκλαδικά στην Κρήτη: Κυκλαδικά και κυκλαδίζοντα ειδώλια μέσα στην ανασκαφική τους συνάφεια», που φιλοξενήθηκε στο Μουσείο Κυκλαδικής Τέχνης τον Οκτώβριο του 2015, έδωσαν την ευκαιρία σε όλο το κοινό να παρακολουθήσει τις παρουσιάσεις των ανασκαφέων και των μελετητών, από την Ελλάδα και το εξωτερικό, και να ακούσει τις συγκλίσεις αλλά και τις αποκλίσεις των διαφόρων απόψεων.
The long neglected issues of land distribution and exploitation had to be placed again at the heart of the history of early Greece, from the great period of Mycenaean palaces to the formation of City-States. This book presents an analysis of land tenure systems based on all available sources, from Mycenaean texts to traditions on Archaic Greece and rural archaeology.
Sacrifice is not simply an expression of religious beliefs. Its highly symbolic nature lends itself to various kinds of manipulation by those carrying it out, who may use the ritual in maintaining and negotiating power and identity in carefully staged 'performances'.
Reconstructing Archaeological Sites offers an important text that puts the focus on basic theoretical and practical aspects of depositional processes in an archaeological site. It contains an in-depth discussion on the role of stratigraphy that helps determine how deposits are organised in time and space.

The status of Kavos on Keros as the earliest maritime sanctuary in the world is documented by the present volume, which includes (in Part A) the full publication of the marble finds from the Special Deposit South at Keros. These constitute the largest assemblage of Early Cycladic sculptures and vessels ever recovered in a controlled excavation, although they were all found in fragmentary condition.
This book investigates the production technology and inter-site circulation of a large and diverse Late Neolithic ceramic assemblage from the flat-extended settlement of Makrygialos (Phase II), in northern Greece. Comparative samples from Dimini, in Thessaly, and Agrosykia A and Giannitsa B, in western Macedonia, are also incorporated.

Minoan Crete is rightly famous for its idiosyncratic architecture, as well as its palaces and towns such as Knossos, Malia, Gournia, and Palaikastro. Indeed, these are often described as the first urban settlements of Bronze Age Europe. However, we still know relatively little about the dynamics of these early urban centres.

In 1990 the University of Minnesota carried out an architectural survey of the standing remains of the Bronze Age Palace of Nestor, discovered by Carl Blegen in 1939 and excavated from 1952 to 1966. While the first stone-by-stone state plan of the building was being created, it became clear that some of the architectural assumptions about the structure and its history could not be correct.

Troy has been of outstanding importance for EBA archaeology ever since the discovery and excavation of the site by Heinrich Schliemann. Partly due to the paucity of archaeological research on EBA Anatolia, Troy has long been considered as the only key site for Western Anatolia and the Northern Aegean.
