Bronze Weaponry and Cultural Mobility in Late Bronze Age Southeast Europe

In C. Horn & K. Kristiansen (eds) 2018. Warfare in Bronze Age Society, Cambridge: 81-100.

The collapse of the Bronze Age palatial centres in the Aegean transformed the societies surrounding the palaces and unbalanced the relationship between these areas and those immediately to the north. In Classical tradition, the Dorians invaded Greece in the twilight years of the palaces or soon thereafter, leading to collapse.

“Archaeological Shoreline Research” (A.Sho.Re.) is an interdisciplinary Research Project of the University of the Peloponnese conducted in collaboration with the N.C.S.R. “Demokritos” and the Hellenic Centre for Marine Research. It explores the historical significance of the Coastal Zone through an extensive and systematic Geo-Archaeological Reconnaissance of SE Kephallenia, the Ionian Sea.

The Southern Euboean Gulf Project was a jointed underwater survey undertaken by the Ephorate of Underwater Antiquities and the Hellenic Institute of the Maritime Archaeology. The aim of the project was to survey large tracts of coastline in the area extended between Sounio, Kavalliani Island and Karystos in search for shipwrecks and traces of ancient navigation and trade.

Παράκτιες θέσεις, ενάλιες μαρτυρίες και διακίνηση πρώτων υλών στον Αργολικό κόλπο, κατά την Πρώιμη Εποχή του Χαλκού

One of the most frequented sea routes in the Aegean throughout the centuries is the one connecting the Saronic and the Argolic Gulfs. The first evidence for seafaring comes from the Mesolithic strata of Franchthi Cave (9000-7000 BC), which contained obsidian tools sourced to the island of Melos.

Building the Labyrinth: Arthur Evans and the construction of Minoan civilization

American Journal of Archaeology 122.1 (January 2018): 5-32

This study provides a detailed exploration of the genesis of concepts such as the Minoan palace (or palace-sanctuary), the priest-king, the mother goddess, and the essentially European (non-“Oriental”) character of the Minoans. By situating these concepts within Evans’ narrative project, I try to demonstrate that these are not objective interpretations that flow obviously from the data but rather began life as preconceptions formed by Evans as part of his Eurocentric agenda, well before the start of his excavations at Knossos.

Imported exotica and mortuary ritual at Perati in Late Helladic IIIC East Attica

American Journal of Archaeology 122.1 (January 2018): 33-64

I examine the context, distribution, and characteristics of imported objects at Perati and argue that the cemetery was the setting for a wide-ranging array of mortuary rituals that involved the deposition of exotic objects with members of the community across spectra of wealth, age, and gender.
