Athens and Attica in prehistory. International conference. Athens, 27-31 May 2015
The importance of Athens and Attica for ancient Greek history is well-known. Archaeologists and historians have studied thoroughly social and cultural life in the Athenian state of the Classical and Archaid periods. By contrast, the prehistory of the region is still poorly known. Although important discoveries have been made over the past two decades, a comprehensive synthesis of prehistoric periods is still lacking. Equally elusive is our appreciation of the profound natural advantages of Attica and their significance both for the earliest habitation of the region and for the rise of complex polities, e.g. during the Mycenaean era.
The conference ‘Athens and Attica in Prehistory’, which will take place May 27-31, 2015, aims at filling this gap. The presentations are expected to bring together old and new excavation data and place it into a wider archaeological context.
