Architecture of Minoan Crete: Constructing Identity in the Aegean Bronze Age

Austin 2010

Architecture of Minoan Crete: Constructing Identity in the Aegean Bronze Age Ever since Sir Arthur Evans first excavated at the site of the Palace at Knossos in the early twentieth century, scholars and visitors have been drawn to the architecture of Bronze Age Crete.

H ρήση αυτή του διάσημου αρχαιολόγου C. Renfrew φανερώνει τη σημασία ενός επιστημονικού κλάδου που ξεκίνησε μεν τυπικά πριν από τριάντα πέντε χρόνια περίπου, αλλά παραμένει ακόμη νεωτερισμός για πολλές αρχαιολογικές ανασκαφές.
