Early Bronze Age chronology of mainland Greece: a review with new dates from the excavations at Kouphovouno
W. Cavanagh, C. Mee & J. Renard Annual of the British School at Athens 111 (2016): 35-49
A series of radiocarbon dates for Early Bronze Age contexts from the excavations at Kouphovouno are published for the first time. By adopting a Bayesian modelling approach, the 14C estimates allow greater precision in arriving at an absolute chronology for the period. The opportunity is taken to place these dates as part of the more general development of the Early Bronze period. The sequence for mainland Greece is compared with the recently revised dating of the Early Cycladic period. The new data support a lower chronology than that advocated in recent publications.
