The Theory of Repetition


A website by Dr Laia Orphanidis, Researcher at the Academy of Athens Research Centre for Antiquity. The website focuses on Neolithic figurines and in particular on the Theory of Repetition which oncerns the interpretation of Neolithic figurines. This theory has been proposed and sustained for the first time in 1992 by Laia Orphanidis and it is based on the fact that all what is steadily repeated is a symbol.

Drakaina Cave


Drakaina cave is situated on the steep slopes of the impressive Gorge of Poros, a small modern village on the southeast coast of Kefalonia island in the Ionian Sea, Western Greece. Excavations carried out between 1992 and 2005 revealed a long and complex sequence of human activity spanning the Late Neolithic (mid 6th millennium BC) through the Early Bronze Age (mid 3rd millennium BC).

The Prehistoric Stones of Greece


This AHRC funded Resource Enhancement Project provides you with a research tool that has many archaeological applications. With it you can investigate the distribution of Palaeolithic, Mesolithic and many Neolithic stone artefacts that have been found in Greece as recorded in 142 field surveys. You can also compare results between surveys in different terrain and regions of the country. The Prehistoric Stones of Greece is a survey of surveys. It was compiled at Royal Holloway between 2004 and 2009 by Paraskevi Elefanti and Gil Marshall. The project was led by Clive Gamble and the website designed by Gil Marshall and Weili Wang, Royal Holloway, University of London.
