Αγγλική περίληψη

This volume explores the results of the American archaeological survey (2005-2007) carried out around the area of Galatas in Central Crete, as requested by Georgos Rethemiotakis, the Director of Excavations at Galatas. It traces the socioeconomic and political development of the Galatas area and its relations with other areas of Crete during the Neolithic–Ottoman periods. Two powerful rival centers in Crete, Knossos/Herakleion and Kastelli/Lyttos, brought the Galatas area under their control at various times in history. The changes in local socioeconomic and political conditions are documented as Galatas came under the direct control of states elsewhere in Crete and overseas.

The archaeological survey was focused on a central site, Galatiani Kephala and its topographic catchment, similar to other smaller surveys, such as the Kavousi, and Pseira surveys. The survey zone was circumscribed by a 5 km radius around the Minoan palace at Galatiani Kephala, which is the geographical area bounded by the villages of Alagni, Astritsi, Sambas, Apostoli, Thrapsano, Arkalochori, and Hagia Semni in North-Central Crete.

Chapters 1 to 4 introduce the reader to the Galatas Survey Project and its region. Chapters 5 to 10 examine the prehistoric settlement of our region. Chapter 5 discusses the Neolithic settlement in the area. Chapters 11 to 14 tackle the historical settlement and society of the Galatas area.
