Intra-site organisation and economy of urban sites in neopalatial Crete: the case study of the settlement of Kato Zakros: an approach on the basis of the archaeological data (in Greek)

, University of Athens 2012

The purpose of this thesis is to identify the basic principles of structure and organisation in the new palatial settlement of Kato Zakros and, through this, to study the intra-organisation of urban sites in Late Minoan I Crete. The main objective of this work, initially, was both the synthetic and full presentation of the excavation data from the settlement of Kato Zakros, secondly, the detection of the basic planning principles, as well as the principles of structure and organisation of each individual architectural unit.

La voirie dans les villes minoennes en Crète orientale et à Cnossos (Minoen Moyen I – Minoen Récent I)

, Université Lyon 2 2013

This doctoral dissertation presents a synthesis of research on streets and public courts in Crete during the Proto- and Neopalatial periods. Ten sites are considered: Knossos, Gournia, Malia, Mochlos, Myrtos-Pyrgos, Palaikastro, Petras, Pseira, Sissi and Zakros. In the first volume, we propose a definition of the different elements related to Minoan streets and courts, and present an exhaustive catalogue of the currently published remains.

Mυκηναϊκή Κορινθία (Μycenaean Corinthia)

, University of Ioannina 2014

The current thesis attempts to present for the first time systematically and analytically the Mycenaean presence in Corinthia, as reflected through bibliographical references, new information, all known publications, the latest research, as well as personal observations and autopsies. It has tried to study in detail the available unpublished Mycenaean material (architectural, burial, findings) from old excavated - yet unknown to the archaeological community - sites, as well as to review and renegotiate the older material from the published sites.

Defining the regional characteristics of Final Neolithic and Early Bronze Age pottery in Attica

, University College London (UCL) 2013

Situated between mainland and island-defined archaeological entities, Attica has traditionally been treated as a transitional borderland between what is perceived as ‘Helladic’ versus ‘Cycladic’ culture. Most discussions of social and cultural interactions in the southern Aegean have so far assumed a peripheral role for Attica during the Final Neolithic (4100-3100 BC) and the Early Bronze Age (3100-2000 BC).

Mycenaean woodworking tools used in shipbuilding (in Greek)

, University of Athens 2010

The target set has been pursued through recording, examination and classification of the available archaeological data, gathering the sources (literature, iconography, archeological parallels, preserved traces), reconstructing the findings (casting, elaboration of the metallic parts, reconstruction of the hafts), using the reconstructed tools and evaluating them through the reconstruction of a fraction of the Uluburun hull and evaluating the tools qualitatively, quantitatively and ergonomically.

Fabricating Signification: An Analysis of the Spatial Relationships Between Room Types in Minoan Monumental Architecture

, University of California, Los Angeles 1998

This dissertation analyzes the function of the Minoan “Palaces” in Late Bronze Age Crete. It also makes reference to numerous “Villas” termed “palatial.” The “Palaces” incorporate a “Labyrinthine” ground plan with elaborate halls, storage rooms, and industrial quarters grouped around a central court. Although general similarities exist in the layout of these buildings, regional variations exist in the distribution of room types and the relationships between rooms as determined by the placement of doorways and corridors.
