Framing Some Aspects of the Early Iron Age ‘Chronological Mess’: Aegean Synchronisms with the West and Their Significance for the Greek Geometric Series

Eleftheria Pappa Kubaba 3 (2012): 2-38.

Περίληψη (στα Αγγλικά)

The absolute chronology provided by the typology of the Greek Geometric pottery is a cornerstone in dating sites not only in Greece, but also in the central/western Mediterranean. In the past decade, the absolute dating of this ceramic series has come under scrutiny in the context of the wider debate on the chronology of the Early Iron Age Mediterranean. To a large extent this stems from the ever-increasing use of the radiocarbon method, which has had a clear impact on the revisionist debate over the Iron Age chronology of Israel. The latter provides the anchors for the dating of the Geometric pottery and thus, it is crucial for early Greek chronology. In recent years, radiocarbon series from Iberian contexts of Geometric pottery began to emerge.This paper discusses the latest evidence and developments regarding the dating of the Geometric pottery from these contexts and their implications for pre-Archaic Aegean chronology. This is especially warranted given the increasing number of voices from the West that call for substantially higher dates for the Middle and Late phases of the Geometric series, engendering an alarming two-tier use of this ceramic style as a chronological marker between the eastern and the western Mediterranean.
