Late Bronze Age Social Landscapes of the Southeast Balkans

Swedish Institute at Athens (Mitseon 9, Athens)

This presentation will introduce a book that explores settlement and burial patterns across the southeastern corner of the Balkan Peninsula during the second millennium BC, offering a detailed cross-border examination of local pottery data. Based on a comprehensive chronologically structured analysis the work calls into question some existing culture-historical constructs. Methodologically this research is founded in the application of advanced spatial-statistical methods exploring settlement- and artefact-scale distributions. The results highlight clusters of attributes and cycles of micro-regional interaction allowing the author to address the formation, development and decline of the Late Bronze Age tradition(s) across three contemporary nation-states.
