Megalo Nisi Galanis (6300–1800 BC): Constructing a Cultural Sequence for the Neolithic of West Macedonia, Greece

Annual of the British School at Athens 114 (2019): 1-40

Scores of Neolithic sites have been excavated in west Macedonia since the 1990s, yet the majority are relatively short-lived installations, lacking high-resolution stratigraphies and sequences of radiocarbon dates. Megalo Nisi Galanis, a large mound in the Kitrini Limni basin, near modern Kozani, is a rare exception to that pattern.

The Neolithic conquest of the Mediterranean

In M. Fernández-Götz & D. Krausse (eds) 2017. Eurasia at the Dawn of History. Urbanization and Social Change, New York: 67-80.

This chapter focuses first on the emergence of the Neolithic economic system in the Near East around the 10th-9th millennium BC, outlining the stages of its diffusion towards the Mediterranean and the cultural shifts provoked by that diffusion. The second part of the chapter examines the perceptible impact of social differentiation throughout the Neolithic period.

Les actes de culte comme marqueurs des transitions historiques: le problème du passage de l’époque mycénienne à l’époque archaïque dans le monde grec

In C. Müller & M. Heintz (eds) 2016. Transitions historiques. Colloques de la Maison de l’Archéologie et de l’Ethnologie, René Ginouvés 12, Paris: 57-67.

Scholars have established a classical chronology for the study of Greek history from the 14th down to the end of the 6th century BC. It distinguishes three movements, the Mycenaean period, a set of centuries to which diverse names are given, and the Archaic period.

Searching for Nomads in Iron Age Thrace

In M. Manoledakis (ed.) 2016. The Black Sea in the Light of New Archaeological Data and Theoretical Approaches. Proceedings of the 2nd International Workshop on the Black Sea in Antiquity Held in Thessaloniki, 18-20 September 2015, Oxford: 77-87.

Mobile lifestyle is frequently used to explain lacunae in archaeological evidence, such as the absence of permanent and long-term occupations in the archaeological record of 1st millennium BC Thrace. In this paper, I investigate the feasibility of Iron Age nomadic pastoralism, defined as an economic activity in which the whole community moves along with the herds.
