Aegean Prehistoric Archaeology


This site contains information about the prehistoric archaeology of the Aegean. Through a series of lessons and illustrations, it traces the cultural evolution of humanity in the Aegean basin from the era of hunting and gathering (Palaeolithic-Mesolithic) through the early village farming stage (Neolithic) and the formative period of Aegean civilization into the age of the great palatial cultures of Minoan Crete and and Mycenaean Greece.

Mycé – L’interprétation du linéaire B


Dans les années 50, Michael Ventris a déchiffré l’écriture mycénienne appelée Linéaire B. L’espoir était grand de trouver, dans l’écriture sur ces tablettes en argile, d’importantes informations anthropologiques sur cette culture, matrice de la civilisation occidentale, qui a habité l’île de Crète ainsi que des citadelles mycéniennes du T.M.II jusqu’à la destruction du dernier niveau de la citadelle de Mycènes (de 1450 à 1100 ACN).

The Three Peak Sanctuaries of Central Crete Project


Naturally, the major aim of the Three Peak Sanctuaries of Central Crete project is to publish the material discovered at the peak sanctuaries of Philioremos-Gonies, Keria-Kroussona and Pyrgos-Tylissos in central northern Crete. In order to achieve this, many years of post-excavation work have been dedicated to the three sites' pottery. As a result, sufficient information was gathered to allow the project to also begin a comparison of the three sites with one another.
