In the 1960s a great new barrier dam was built across the Peneios Valley in Elis in the N.W. Peloponnese to create an artificial lake for irrigation purposes. In 1967 the Greek Archaeological Service organised a preliminary survey of the areas to be affected and also asked all the Foreign Archaeological Schools to assist and allocated specific sections to each.

Beyond Thalassocracies aims to evaluate and rethink the manner in which archaeologists approach, understand, and analyse the various processes associated with culture change connected to interregional contact, using as a test case the world of the Aegean during the Late Bronze Age (c. 1600–1100 BC).

The choice of the Archeological Museum of Mycenae for this year’s volume came about effortlessly. It is a place where historical facts are interwoven with mythology and protagonists like Atreus, Agamemnon, Clytemnestra, Menelaus, Iphigenia and Orestes come alive before the eyes of the visitor.
Landscape archaeology is being transformed by the recent development of novel geoinformatic techniques that facilitate entirely new ways to study the archaeological record. Despite this stimulating potential, these techniques are developing so quickly that many practitioners are not fully aware of their capabilities or the most suitable ways to apply them.
In this book the authors publish thirteen tombs and two pyres excavated by the Cyprus Department of Antiquities in the cemeteries of Palaepaphos, on the western part of Cyprus. More tombs from the same cemeteries were published by the same authors in 2014 and earlier (by V. Karageorghis) in 1983.
Extensive excavations in the Necropolis of Palaepaphos at site Skales undertaken by the Department of Antiquities in 1979 had demonstrated the importance of this kingdom of Cyprus from the early 11th century B.C. to the end of the Cypro-Geometric III period.
This book focuses on merging all disciplines, perspectives, theories, aspects and applications of disasters in their spatio-temporal framework (archaeodisasters), into one major scientific field (Disaster Archaeology).
The Mycenaean palatial polities, which flourished approximately between 1400 and 1200 BC, are the first states on the European mainland. For that reason they play an important role for the study of the development of social systems.
This volume complements Lerna V: The Neolithic Pottery of Lerna, by K. D.
