In recognition of the outstanding contribution made by Peter Warren to Aegean archaeology — and in particular to Cretan studies — this volume offers a collection of 36 papers reflecting his wide-ranging research interests. Among the topics addressed are material culture and iconography, including frescoes, pottery, seals and stone vases; chronology, inter-site relationships, overseas connections and religion; Knossos and the legacy of Sir Arthur Evans; and the natural world, Minoan and modern. While some papers present unpublished material for the first time, others reflect on broader themes, offering important new insights into perennial problems of Minoan archaeology. Thus, as a whole, the volume serves as an important overview of current research into Bronze Age Crete and its wider relations, both spatially and temporally.
