From grand narratives to multiple scales: space, life and process in Neolithic Greece and beyond
Stella Souvatzi Antiquity 93.369 (June 2019): 814-817
Both volumes considered here represent these changes and offer lively insights into Neolithic societies in Greece, the Balkans and West Anatolia. At the same time, they demonstrate the growing developments in Greek Neolithic studies, the explosion of new data and the emergence of new research questions. Each volume has a distinctive focus, but they complement each other in more ways than one, e.g. in geographic, temporal, thematic and theoretical coverage. They both derive from international conferences held in Greece, one (Communities, landscapes and interaction) in Rethymnon, Crete in 2015, the other (Communities in transition) in Athens in 2013, and several authors have chapters in both volumes.
