The present book consists in the full publication of both the structures and related finds excavated in the Protopalatial building located at the southern slope of the so-called Acropoli Mediana at Phaistos, ca. 100 m West of the Palace (Rooms CV, CVI and CVII). This building was the object of a rescue excavation, carried out by Doro Levi in 1969 and 1971.

Les échanges scientifiques et, plus précisément, le travail de comparaison à différentes échelles entre les palais égéens et proche-orientaux est très vite apparu comme une nécessité après le déchiffrement du linéaire B, et même avant. Le travail en commun et la comparaison restent des défis, et les méthodes de comparaison (échelles, objets, finalités) restent des objets de discussion.
Knut Ødegård and his collaborators have held a key position here, but their survey work and other projects have focused on an analysis of the landscape surrounding Tegea and on the urban centre, not on the sanctuary. We expect, however, that the results from our first excavation project in the sanctuary of Athena Alea, as they are presented here, will encourage work to be continued also there.

In such a continuation also the Norwegian institute and Norwegian archaeologists want to participate.
Emily Anderson turns light on the moment just before the palaces, recognizing it as a remarkably vibrant phase of socio-cultural innovation. Exploring the role of craftspersons, travelers and powerful objects, she argues that social change resulted from creative work that forged connections at new scales and in novel ways.

In the area of metalwork, several papers investigate interconnections within and around the Aegean during the Early, Middle, and Late Bronze Ages (Betancourt, Ferrence, and Muhly, Weingarten, Kopcke), while others examine metal ware in its social context (Wiener). Papers on wall painting range from studies of pigments and optical illusions (Vlachopoulos), to representations of water (Shank). Anthropomorphic representations, or their absence, of goddesses or priestesses (Jones), rulers (Palaima), or initiates (Koehl) are also studied here with new eyes and fresh insights.

Sono molti, ancora oggi, i punti oscuri della storia delle Cicladi durante l’antica Età del Bronzo, in particolare sui suoi rapporti culturali e sugli scambi commerciali con la Grecia continentale, con l’isola di Creta e con la città anatolica di Troia.
The distribution of ceramic juglets in the eastern Mediterranean of the Middle to Late Bronze Age has become linked to the provision of precious commodities, such as perfumed oil to lower elite segments of society.
The honorand of this volume, Matti Egon, has been a great benefactor to museums, schools, universities and hospitals in the UK and also in Greece: all areas that her back-ground and life’s interests have made dear to her.

This book, available for free on the web as an almost complete draft, makes available to the Aegean archaeologists the fundamental results achieved in over thirty years of excavations, restorations and interdisciplinary studies on the key-site for the northern Aegean Early Bronze age.
The origins, as well as the interconnections of the Mycenaeans with other civilizations, were always of great interest to Prof. Papadopoulos. This honorary volume expands to diverse eras, from Neolithic to Byzantine times, following Mycenaean paths that lead even to the distant East: to Egypt, whose culture Prof. Papadopoulos taught for many years at Ioannina University, and to Jordan, where he excavated for more than 10 years.
The wall paintings discussed in this volume were originally discovered in 1958 by Niko-laos Verdelis during the excavation of the West House, one of the four buildings, also known as the “Ivory Houses,” south of Grave Circle B, at Mycenae.

The catalogue contains all Aegean metals kept in the Department of Ancient Cultures of Denmark and the Mediterranean. In the section on the Near Eastern metals, bronzes from Hama, however, are not included. Except for that, all metal objects from the Near East dated before 1000 BC are found in the catalogue.
