Communities, Landscapes, and Interaction in Neolithic Greece. Proceedings of the International Conference, Rethymno 29-30 May, 2015 The last three decades have witnessed a period of growing archaeological activity in Greece that have enhanced our awareness of the diversity and variability of ancient communities. New sites offer rich datasets from many aspects of material culture that challenge traditional perceptions and suggest complex interpretations of the past.

Boeotia Project, Volume II: The City of Thespiai. Survey at a Complex Urban Site

Cambridge 2017

Boeotia Project, Volume II: The City of Thespiai. Survey at a Complex Urban Site Few major Classical cities have disappeared so completely from view, over the centuries, as Thespiai in Central Greece. Only the technique of intensive field survey, carefully adapted to a large urban site and reinforced by historical investigation, has made it possible to recover from oblivion much of its life of seven millennia.

Domestic and ritual use of plants and fuels in the Neolithic cave of Alepotrypa, southern Peloponnese, Greece: The wood charcoal and phytolith evidence

Quaternary International 457 (2017): 211-227

The study presents the combined results of wood charcoal and phytolith analysis at Alepotrypa Cave, southern Peloponnese, Greece. The cave preserves rich cultural remains (hearth and floor constructions, pits and platforms, human bone scatters, massive quantities of fine pottery, lithic artefacts and ornaments) spanning the late Early to the Final Neolithic.

Landscape and wood-fuel in Akrotiri (Thera, Greece) during the Bronze Age

Quaternary International 458 (2017): 44-55

Wood charcoal macroremains originating from the archaeological site of Akrotiri, Thera (Greece) have been analyzed. The results obtained suggest the existence of thermophilous vegetation on the island from the Early Cycladic period right up to the catastrophic eruption of the volcano in the Late Cycladic I period.

From Maple to Olive: Proceedings of a Colloquium to Celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the Canadian Institute in Greece. Athens, 10–11 June 2016 In the 1990s, there were times when it appeared as though the then Canadian Archaeological Institute at Athens would not see the light of the new millennium. In 2015, with the now Canadian Institute in Greece’s 40th anniversary of its official recognition as one of the foreign archaeological schools and institutes by the Hellenic Ministry of Culture fast approaching, the authors thought it would be appropriate to celebrate this achievement with a colloquium.

The Earliest Production of Aegean-Type Pottery in Cyprus

Pisa

The Earliest Production of Aegean-Type Pottery in Cyprus The outstanding feature of the shape of the three-handled jars which are the primary focus of this study (Shapes 46 and 47 in Furumark’s classification) is the conical or biconical body, sometimes with a rather angular shoulder. Probably used as ointment containers, these three-handled jars were relatively common in Cypriot tombs, especially at Enkomi, but no small jars of these shapes have been found in the Aegean.

Climate change, human population growth, or both? Upper Paleolithic subsistence shifts in southern Greece

Quaternary International 428 (2017): 17-32

Read the article

Changes in subsistence patterns during the Upper Paleolithic and Mesolithic at Klissoura Cave 1 in southern Greece indicate that some shifts track local climatic changes, while others do not. Specifically, increases in ungulate species diversity correlate with wetter periods, and greater abundance of certain dry-loving small game animals (e.g., great bustard) might correspond with dry periods.
