Knut Ødegård and his collaborators have held a key position here, but their survey work and other projects have focused on an analysis of the landscape surrounding Tegea and on the urban centre, not on the sanctuary. We expect, however, that the results from our first excavation project in the sanctuary of Athena Alea, as they are presented here, will encourage work to be continued also there.

In such a continuation also the Norwegian institute and Norwegian archaeologists want to participate.

The famous ‘Silk Roads’ have long evoked a romantic picture of travel through colourful civilizations that connected the western and eastern poles of Eurasia, facilitating the exchange of exotic luxury goods, peoples, pathogens and ideas. But how far back can we trace such interaction? Increasing evidence suggests considerable time-depth for Trans-Eurasian exchange, with the expanding urban networks of the Bronze Age at times anticipating later caravan routes.

Macedonia, due to its central location at the crossroads between the Aegean and the Balkans, the East and the West, was the place where important Neolithic settlements developed already from an early phase. Several of them have been investigated over the past decades and many more have been recorded through surveys.
This volume examines prehistoric copper mining in Europe, from the first use of the metal eight thousand years ago in the Balkans to its widespread adoption during the Bronze Age. The history of research is examined, as is the survival of this mining archaeology in different geological settings.
