This project was conceived in 1991 by L.V. Watrous. At that time, the Mirabello Bay area had been the focus of excavation at various sites - e.g., Vasiliki, Mochlos, Kavousi, and Pseira - for a number of years. Moreover, two surveys had just been completed in the Istron and Kavousi areas.

When the Temple University archaeological project was excavating at the Bronze Age seaport on Pseira Island and Richard Hope Simpson discovered two massive stone and soil dams that were built in the middle of the second millennium B.C., we knew we had opened a new chapter in prehistoric engineering and water management.
This volume offers the first comprehensive examination of an ancient writing system from Cyprus and Syria known as Cypro-Minoan. After Linear B was deciphered by Michael Ventris in 1952, other un-deciphered scripts of the second millennium B.C. from the Aegean world (Linear A) and the Eastern Mediterranean (Cypro-Minoan) became the focus of those trying to crack this ancient and historical code. Despite several attempts for both syllabaries, this prospect has remained unrealized.
When does the Greek culture begin? How can we methodologically define its starting-point and locate it in time? To which times and which processes should we trace back the origins of the Greeks of historical antiquity? The present book is a scientific as well as a writing enterprise.
The third volume in the Archaeology series examines the Peloponnese, home to important city-states, birthplace of mythical heroes, cradle of ancient religious celebrations and athletics games of the ancient world.
My interest in Thermos goes back to the time when I served as Ephor of Antiquities for Achaia and Aitoloakarnania (1976-1983). It was my obligation to deal with archaeological matters of that site, such as the arrangement of the agora. Thus, when, in 1983, at the request of the Archaeological Society in Athens, I undertook the continuation of the excavation of Thermos, which had been conducted by Rhomaios until 1932, I began with the agora.
Το παρόν βιβλίο, αποτελεί την τρίτη εκδοτική συνέχεια, μετά από εκείνο για την «Ιστορία της ενορίας και του χωριού Αγάπητος» και το δεύτερο με τίτλο «Τοπωνυμικά και Ονοματολογικά της νήσου Τήνου» (ΠΕΡΙΟΔΟΣ: ΒΥΖΑΝΤΙΝΑ-ΜΕΣΑΙΩΝΙΚΑ, Βιβλίο Νο 1 και Νο 2 αντίστοιχα) με τα οποία εγκαινιάστηκε μια σειρά ειδικών δημοσιευμάτων που αφορούν την Ιστορία της Τήνου και απασχόλησαν τον συγγραφέα επί 36 συνεχή χρόνια.
O λόγος περί γυναικών και ο λόγος των γυναικών ενυπάρχει στις αναπαραστάσεις του παρελθόντος, όσο και αν αποθαρρύνεται από την κατεστημένη έρευνα. Στο βιβλίο αυτό αποτιμάται η συμβολή των γυναικών στην αρχαιολογία με βάση το δίπτυχο της επιστημονικής και της έμφυλης ιδιότητάς τους.
The finding of a sword of possible Mycenaean or Aegean origin of the Late Bronze Age era, at Hattuša, dated ca. 1420-1400 BC, inspired the present research, which deals with the exchange of technologies and know-how between the regions around the Aegean Sea, as derived from the archaeological evidence and the ancient Greek literature.
The volume intends to be not only a straightforward presentation of the Middle and Late Bronze Age pottery from Mainland Greece, including the islands of Aegina and Paros, stored in the Schachermeyr Collection at the Austrian Academy of Sciences, but also to offer an in-depth discussing on a selection of ralated topics.

In 1982 a short joint survey of the Amari valley took place as a co-operation between the University of Naples-Federico II and the Greek Archaeological Service. The team was led by Dr. Yiannis Tzedhakis, then Director of Classical and Prehistoric Antiquities at the Greek Ministry of Culture and Professor Luis Godart of the University of Naples.
Bernhard Steinmann widmet sich in seiner Untersuchung Waffengräbern der minoischen und mykenischen Hochkulturen aus dem 20. bis 12. Jahrhundert v.Chr. Zu den typischen Grabbeigaben gehören hier vor allem Waffen, die das Interesse der Elite spiegeln, ihre kriegerische Tüchtigkeit zu betonen.

How do the cultures of Crete and Cyprus, the two great islands of the eastern Mediterranean, compare in their history and development from the 3rd millennium to the 1st millennium BC? What was similar and what was different in their social and political, economic and technological, and religious and mortuary practices and behaviours, and in the natural settings and choices of places for settlements?
