Χαιρώνεια

Αthens 2012

Χαιρώνεια Η Βοιωτία είναι μία εύφορη περιοχή της Ελλάδος με επαρκή ύδρευση, αλλουβιακά κατά το πλείστον εδάφη και καλή ισορροπία πεδινών και ορεινών εκτάσεων για καλλιέργεια, κυνήγι, βοσκή και ξυλεία. Η Χαιρώνεια βρίσκεται στην κοιλάδα του Βοιωτικού Κηφισού ποταμού, που όχι μόνον ύδρευε την αρχαία Βοιωτία, όπως και σήμερα, αλλά χρησίμευε και ως επικοινωνιακός ιστός ανάμεσα στην κεντρική-δυτική Βοιωτία και τη Φωκίδα-Δωρίδα από όπου πηγάζει.

Oxford 2012

Thinking beyond the Tool. Archaeological computing and the interpretive process The idea of putting together this book was inspired by the session Thinking beyond the Tool: Archaeological Computing and the Interpretive Process', which was held at the Theoretical Archaeology Group (TAG) conference in Bristol (17-19 December 2010).

Sexually Ambiguous Imagery in Cyprus from the Neolithic to the Cypro-Archaic Period

Oxford 2012

Sexually Ambiguous Imagery in Cyprus from the Neolithic to the Cypro-Archaic Period Although the earliest known literary evidence for a dual-sexed divinity on Cyprus dates to the fifth century BCE, archaeological evidence indicates there was a tradition on the island of sexually ambiguous imagery which predates the literary sources. This information prompted the present research, which traces the tradition back to the earliest known examples on Late Neolithic Cyprus, and tracks its evolution through to the Cypro-Archaic period.

Feasting Practices and Changes in Greek Society from the Late Bronze Age to Early Iron Age

Oxford 2012

Feasting Practices and Changes in Greek Society from the Late Bronze Age to Early Iron Age A feast is a sensory, sacralised and social occasion. Its multiple resonances and experiences extend far beyond the nutritive consumption of food and drink by a group of people. To reduce the act of feasting to functional terms overlooks the vivid tastes and smells, the bonds created and broken between fellow-participants, the awe induced by dining in the presence of the dead, the gods or a powerful leader, and the embedding of bodily memories in the diners to be recalled long after the event.

Ανασκαφική μεθοδολογία και σχεδιασμός πληροφοριακού συστήματος για τη διαχείριση αρχαιολογικών τεκμηρίων

Thessaloniki 2012

Ανασκαφική μεθοδολογία και σχεδιασμός πληροφοριακού συστήματος για τη διαχείριση αρχαιολογικών τεκμηρίων Το βιβλίο εξετάζει την ενσωμάτωση της ψηφιακής τεχνολογίας στην ανασκαφική πράξη με επίκεντρο την ανάπτυξη ενός πληροφοριακού συστήματος για τη διαχείριση και τη διερεύνηση των αρχαιολογικών δεδομένων. Η προσέγγιση χρησιμοποιεί τα Συστήματα Γεωγραφικών Πληροφοριών (ΣΓΠ), διεθνώς γνωστά με τον όρο GIS, και εκμεταλλεύεται τις δυνατότητες που παρέχουν ως προς την τρισδιάστατη χωρική αναπαράσταση και την οπτική αντιπαραβολή της ανασκαφικής πληροφορίας.

2000-2010. Από το ανασκαφικό έργο των Εφορειών Αρχαιοτήτων

Athens 2012

2000-2010. Από το ανασκαφικό έργο των Εφορειών Αρχαιοτήτων Το ανασκαφικό έργο που επιτέλεσαν οι Εφορείες Αρχαιοτήτων του ΥΠΠΟΤ τα τελευταία χρόνια είναι τώρα στο διαδίκτυο. Δημοσιευμένο συστηματικά μέχρι σήμερα μόνο από την έκδοση “Αρχαιολογικόν Δελτίον”, το έργο των αρχαιολόγων του ΥΠΠΟ παρέμενε μέχρι σήμερα – εκτός από ελάχιστες εξαιρέσεις – δύσκολα προσβάσιμο και συνεπώς σχετικά άγνωστο.

Back to the Beginning: Reassessing Social and Political Complexity on Crete during the Early and Middle Bronze Age.

Oxford/Oakville 2012

Back to the Beginning: Reassessing Social and Political Complexity on Crete during the Early and Middle Bronze Age. Ever since their first discovery, more than a century ago, the Minoan Palaces have dominated scholarship on the Cretan Bronze Age. Opinion long held that their first appearance, seemingly at the beginning of the Middle Bronze Age, marked a pivotal transformation point, during which the simple, egalitarian societies of the Early Bronze Age were transformed into something significantly more complex, hierarchical and civilised.
