The target of this book is dual: first, it presents the findings of the archaeological excavations, during these two decades, as well as the results obtained from the relevant studies (architecture, pottery, small finds); secondly, it attempts to demonstrate the diachronic role of the Bronze Age settlement at Dimini, not only in the adjacent geographical area, especially in relation to the other two, well-known contemporary sites in the Pagasetic Gulf (Kastro Volou/Palia and Pefkakia), but also in the wider area of Bronze Age Thessaly, in an attempt to highlight inter-settlement economic and sociopolitical relations.

Um die Mitte des 9. Jhs. v. Chr. bringen die Töpfer und Vasenmaler auf Kreta einen eigenwilligen geometrischen Keramikstil hervor, dessen Hauptmerkmale kurvolineare Ornamente und erste figürliche Darstellungen nach dem Ende der bronzezeitlichen minoischen Kultur sind. Besonders die Ornamente - Schlaufenlinien, Spiralen und Flechtbänder - sind in der Forschung häufig auf nahöstlichen Einfluss zurückgeführt worden.

Within archaeological studies, land tenure has been mainly studied from the viewpoint of ownership. A host of studies has argued about land ownership on the basis of the simple co-existence of artefacts on the landscape; other studies have tended to extrapolate land ownership from more indirect means.

The importance of cultural contacts in the East Mediterranean has long been recognized and is the focus of ongoing international research. Fieldwork in the Aegean, Egypt, Cyprus, and the Levant continues to add to our understanding of the nature of this contact and its social and economic significance, particularly to the cultures of the Aegean.

The fact that Aegean type pottery is found in Italy is of great importance when we consider the cultural contacts between the Apennine peninsula and the southern Balkans in the late Bronze Age. Ever since the 19th Century its interpretation has been subject of great controversy, the colonisation with the permanent presence of Aegean groups or commercial settlements have been taken into consideration as well as the modes of exchange and the significance of imports.
