The Collapse of Palatial Society in LBA Greece and the Postpalatial Period

Oxford 2010

The Collapse of Palatial Society in LBA Greece and the Postpalatial Period This monograph deals with the destruction and disappearance of the palaces and palace societies of Late Bronze Age or Mycenaean Greece c.1200 and aspects of continuity and change in the subsequent Postpalatial period of the twelfth and eleventh centuries (LHIIIC). It is primarily concerned with mainland Greece and the islands, excluding Crete. An emphasis in this work, where analysis of the Greek material itself or theories based upon it is attempted, is the potential for differences between palatial and non-palatial areas.

Depositi ceramici del Medio Minoico III da Festòs e Haghia Triada

This volume deals with the Middle Minoan (MM) III pottery deposits from Phaistos and Ayia Triada, and has several purposes: firstly, to provide the evidence for a reassessment of the chronological sequence of the MM III in southern Crete; secondly, to add ceramic data to the scanty architectural evidence from both sites during this crucial period; thirdly, to clarify the key passage from MM III to LM IA by presenting specific deposits that support the MM IIIA and IIIB terminologies used in this volume; fourthly, to enlarge the ceramic corpus already embodied by substantial data published from Kommos.

Ritual Practice between the Late Bronze Age and Protogeometric Periods of Greece

Oxford 2010

Ritual Practice between the Late Bronze Age and Protogeometric Periods of Greece The study of Greek ritual practice throughout the LH III B to Protogeometric periods is the central theme of this research. Chapter Two acknowledges the work of previous Aegean archaeologists and their methods for classification of the features which should be present in order for a site to be categorised as cultic in nature. The chapter goes one step further with the creation of new criteria specifically adapted to be relevant to all types of sanctuaries, be they palatial cult centres, settlement shrines, or isolated open-air shrines throughout the period.

Μυκηναϊκοί οικισμοί Αχαΐας (Mycenaean settlements in Achaia)

Patras 2010

Μυκηναϊκοί οικισμοί Αχαΐας (Mycenaean settlements in Achaia) Η διαπραγμάτευση της αχαϊκής τοπογραφίας κατά τη μυκηναϊκή περίοδο αποτελεί τμήμα της διδακτορικής διατριβής της συγγραφέως που αφορά τους οικισμούς της Πελοποννήσου κατά την Ύστερη περίοδο του Χαλκού. Η διατριβή επιπλέον επικεντρώνεται στη συλλογή μαρτυριών που έχουν σχέση με τα οικιστικά κατάλοιπα αυτής της περιόδου, καθώς επίσης και στην ανάπτυξη μιας προβληματικής, αντικείμενο της οποίας αποτελεί η θεώρηση της δημιουργίας και ανάπτυξης του μυκηναϊκού οικισμού. Κατά τη διάρκεια της συγγραφής της και στο πλαίσιο της κατάταξης και ανάλυσης των οικιστικών εγκαταστάσεων ανά νομό, η συγγραφέας προσπάθησε να δώσει έμφαση στα τοπικά χαρακτηριστικά ώστε να γίνει αντιληπτό ότι αυτά έπαιξαν το δικό τους δυναμικό ρόλο στη δημιουργία και οργάνωση των οικιστικών πυρήνων της Ελλάδας κατά την υπό έρευνα περίοδο.

Bloomington & Indianapolis 2010

Flexible Stones. Ground Stone Tools from Franchthi Cave

Despite their ubiquitous presence among prehistoric remains in Greece, ground stone tools have yet to attract the same kind of attention as have other categories of archaeological material, such as pottery or lithics. As a consequence of this oversight the potential for this material to illuminate aspects of prehistoric life remains unexplored.

The Oxford Handbook of the Bronze Age Aegean

Oxford 2010

The Oxford Handbook of the Bronze Age Aegean

The Greek Bronze Age, roughly 3000 to 1000 BC, witnessed the flourishing of the Minoan and Mycenean civilizations, the earliest expansion of trade in the Aegean and wider Mediterranean Sea, the development of artistic techniques in a variety of media, and the evolution of early Greek religious practices and mythology. The period also witnessed a violent conflict in Asia Minor between warring peoples in the region, a conflict commonly believed to be the historical basis for Homer's Trojan War. The Oxford Handbook of the Bronze Age Aegean provides a detailed survey of these fascinating aspects of the period, and many others, in sixty-six newly commissioned articles.
