Boeotia Project, Volume II: The City of Thespiai. Survey at a Complex Urban Site

Cambridge 2017

Boeotia Project, Volume II: The City of Thespiai. Survey at a Complex Urban Site Few major Classical cities have disappeared so completely from view, over the centuries, as Thespiai in Central Greece.

Oxford 2018

Settlement and Land Use on the Periphery. The Bouros-Kastri Peninsula, Southern Euboia The Bouros-Kastri peninsula at the south-eastern tip of the Greek island of Euboia has previously been overlooked in the archaeological literature.

Die goldenen Siegelringen der Ägäischen Bronzezeit

Heidelberg 2018

Die goldenen Siegelringen der Ägäischen Bronzezeit The aim of the present work is to present a comprehensive survey of the genre of Minoan and Mycenaean signet rings in its chronological, technical and iconographic development. The study of the material faces two main problems: First, seal images of supposedly religious content have always been a vividly discussed subject of research, while signet rings with allegedly lesser pictographical potential were (and still are) significantly underrepresented in the literature.

The Earliest Production of Aegean-Type Pottery in Cyprus

Pisa 2017

The Earliest Production of Aegean-Type Pottery in Cyprus The outstanding feature of the shape of the three-handled jars which are the primary focus of this study (Shapes 46 and 47 in Furumark’s classification) is the conical or biconical body, sometimes with a rather angular shoulder. Probably used as ointment containers, these three-handled jars were relatively common in Cypriot tombs, especially at Enkomi, but no small jars of these shapes have been found in the Aegean.
