Caves, palimpsests and dwelling spaces: examples from the Upper Palaeolithic of south-east Europe

World Archaeology 41.2 (2009): 215-241.

Deposits in caves and rock-shelters typically occur in the form of low-resolution palimpsests or time-averaged deposits, resulting from the superimposition of repeated and variable episodes of occupation, low rates of sedimentation and mixing by natural and anthropogenic processes. Despite the development of an impressive array of analytical techniques to disentangle these palimpsests into their constituent episodes of occupation, high resolution chronologies and detailed snapshots of activity areas and spatial organization have proved elusive.

Uncovering Ancient Greece: Fifty Years of Archaeological Discoveries

Massachusetts

Uncovering Ancient Greece: Fifty Years of Archaeological Discoveries Catalogue of an exhibition held at the de Menil Gallery (January 12, 2009 - March 3) to celebrate a long and fruitful career of Hugh Sackett with Groton School. Principally associated throughout his career with the British School in Athens, Mr. Sackett is best known for his work at five important archaeological digs that were the focus of the exhibition: the Dema and Vari Houses near Athens, the Unexplored Mansion at Knossos in Crete, the town of Lefkandi on the island of Euboea, and a previously unknown Minoan palace complex at Palaikastro in eastern Crete.

Post-collapse: The re-emergence of polity in Iron Age Boğazköy, central Anatolia

Oxford Journal of Archaeology 28.3 (August 2009): 275–300.

How communities reorganize after collapse is drawing increasing attention across a wide spectrum of disciplines. Iron Age Boğazköy provides an archaeological case study of urban and political regeneration after the widespread collapse of eastern Mediterranean Late Bronze Age empires in the early twelfth century BC.

Domesticity by default. Ritual, Ritualization and cave-use in the Neolithic Aegean

Oxford Journal of Archaeology 28.2 (May 2009): 125–153.

Neolithic caves in the Aegean are conventionally understood in domestic terms, principally as temporary homes for farmers or pastoralists. This paper challenges the theoretical and empirical foundations of this orthodoxy and develops an alternative model grounded in an understanding of Neolithic ritual and how through ritualization the everyday is referenced and transformed.
