Wien 2015

The Transmission of Technical Knowledge in the Production of Ancient Mediterranean Pottery. Proceedings of the International Conference at the Austrian Archaeological Institute at Athens, 23rd-25th November 2012 The current volume unites theoretical, anthropological, and archaeological approaches to knowledge transmission. The case studies cover various periods and regions from the ancient Mediterranean and beyond, from the Bronze Age to the Roman period, from the Levant in the east to the western Mediterranean and the Celtic north, but also from today’s central Niger.

An Island between Two Worlds. The Archaeology of Euboea from Prehistoric to Byzantine Times. Proceedings of International Conference, Eretria, 12-14 July 2013 The island of Euboea has always acted as a bridge connecting mainland Greece to the wider Aegean and the Mediterranean world; its archaeological importance was an acknowledged but often understated fact. Euboea, a region with an identity crisis, at the same time considered an island but also a part of the mainland, due to its geographical and cultural proximity, has for millennia played an important role in events that shaped aspects of Greek antiquity.

The Minoan World. Journey to the origins of Europe

Heraklion 2015

The Minoan World. Journey to the origins of Europe Τhe Minoan civilisation, one of the greatest achievements of human endeavour in the world, was the first civilisation to arise on European soil. Recognising its uniqueness, Arthur Evans, the excavator of Knossos, the metropolitan centre of the Minoan world, named the civilisation he brought to light "Minoan", inspired by the legendary King Minos of Knossos.

RA-PI-NE-U. Studies on the Mycenaean World offered to Robert Laffineur for his 70th Birthday

Louvain 2016

RA-PI-NE-U. Studies on the Mycenaean World offered to Robert Laffineur for his 70th Birthday This volume, in honour of one of the Odysseuses in Aegean archaeology, Professor Robert Laffineur, comprises a combination of papers presented during a seminar series on recent developments in Mycenaean archaeology at the Université de Louvain during the academic year 2015-2016. These were organised within the frame of the ARC13/18 - 049 (concerted research action) “A World in Crisis?”.

Staging Death. Funerary Performance, Architecture and Landscape in the Aegean

Berlin/Boston 2016

Staging Death. Funerary Performance, Architecture and Landscape in the Aegean Places are social, lived, ideational landscapes constructed by people as they inhabit their natural and built environment. An ‘archaeology of place’ attempts to move beyond the understanding of the landscape as inert background or static fossil of human behaviour. From a specifically mortuary perspective, this approach entails a focus on the inherently mutable, transient and performative qualities of ‘deathscapes’: how they are remembered, obliterated, forgotten, reworked, or revisited over time.

Arm und Reich – Zur Ressourcenverteilung in prähistorischen Gesellschaften

Halle (Saale) 2016

Arm und Reich – Zur Ressourcenverteilung in prähistorischen Gesellschaften The question of “Rich and Poor”, in other words of social inequality is, as shown by a glance at the newspapers, a highly topical issue. At the same time it is one of the fundamental questions of human communities.

Cretomania. Modern Desires for the Minoan Past

London/New York 2016

Cretomania. Modern Desires for the Minoan Past Since its rediscovery in the early 20th century, through spectacular finds such as those by Sir Arthur Evans at Knossos, Minoan Crete has captured the imagination not only of archaeologists but also of a wider public.

Archaeodiet in the Greek World: Dietary Reconstruction from Stable Isotope Analysis

Princeton/New Jersey 2015

Archaeodiet in the Greek World: Dietary Reconstruction from Stable Isotope Analysis The analysis of stable isotope ratios of carbon and nitrogen in bone collagen provides a powerful tool for reconstructing past diets, since it provides the only direct evidence of the foods that were actually consumed. The chapters that comprise this volume describe the application of this methodology to the archaeology of Greece, a country whose archaeobotanical remains have been isotopically studied more extensively than any other place in the world.

The Pottery from Dhaskalio

Cambridge 2016

The Pottery from Dhaskalio This volume treats in detail the pottery from the settlement on the islet of Dhaskalio, whose excavation is described in Volume I of the series. Much of the importance of this material lies in the undisturbed stratigraphy of the settlement, a fact that allowed for the recognition of three successive phases of occupation of the site with considerable ceramic continuity between them, as well as for safe inferences about its chronology, with wider implications for the later Εarly Βronze Αge of the Cyclades.

Tools, Textiles and Contexts. Investigating Textile Production in the Aegean and Eastern Mediterranean Bronze Age

Oxford & Philadelphia 2015

Tools, Textiles and Contexts. Investigating Textile Production in the Aegean and Eastern Mediterranean Bronze Age Textile production is one of the most important crafts in Aegean and Eastern Mediterranean Bronze Age societies and recent interdisciplinary and collaborative work offers crucial new perspectives into this field. The new and updated catalogue of archaeological textile finds presented here clearly demonstrates, even from the few extant finds, that knowledge of the use of fibres and of elaborate textile techniques that were used to produce textiles of different qualities was well developed.
