Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 2011

The Cave of the Cyclops: Mesolithic and Neolithic Networks in the Northern Aegean, Greece. Volume II: Bone Tool Industries, Dietary Resources and the Paleoenvironment, and Archeometrical Studies The archaeological material presented in the first volume has demonstrated the importance of the Cave of the Cyclops, which unquestionably constitutes a byword in the prehistory of the Aegean.

L’émergence de la civilisation mycénienne en Grèce centrale

Leuven-Liège 2011

L’émergence de la civilisation mycénienne en Grèce centrale Durant la dernière phase de l’Âge du Bronze (XVIe-XIe s. av. J.-C.), la civilisation mycénienne voit le jour et s’épanouit en Grèce continentale. Alors que la découverte des tombes à fosse de Mycènes et des tombes à tholos de Messénie a attiré l’attention sur le Péloponnèse, la Grèce centrale se révèle également sensible aux changements culturels qui se sont produits dès la fin de l’Helladique Moyen. Bien que le mode de vie ne paraisse pas s’être modifié radicalement dans les habitats examinés, les sépultures témoignent de changements culturels profonds, comme le suggèrent les inhumations successives de plus en plus souvent attestées.

Oxford

Thapsos-Class Ware Reconsidered: The Case of Achaea in the Northern Peloponnese. Pottery Workshop or Pottery Style? Recent excavations in the region of Achaea in the northern Peloponnese (Greece) have brought to light new evidence on the Thapsos-class of vases. Their identification amongst the grave goods as well as the dedications in the two important sanctuary sites of the area provide a starting point for reassessing the question of this particular ware’s identity and its main production centre.

Transport Stirrup Jars of the Bronze Age Aegean and East Mediterranean

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Transport Stirrup Jars of the Bronze Age Aegean and East Mediterranean The transport stirrup jar was a vessel type used extensively in the Late Bronze Age III Aegean world. Found in a variety of contexts, the type was used both to transport and to store liquid commodities in bulk.

Palaeomagnetic Results From Minoan Ash Deposits (Rv Vema) Cores V10-50 And V10-58 South Aegean Sea: A Comparison With Santorini Minoan Pumice Deposits

The Mediterranean Archaeology & Archaeometry 11:2 (2011): 151-168.

Palaeomagnetic and anisotropy measurements were carried out on Minoan ash deposits obtained from the deep-sea cores, (V10-50 and V10-58), South Aegean Sea. Three distinct layers have been reported within the ash deposit in core (V10-50). Based primarily on grain-size differences, a link to three separate eruptive phases of Santorini has been suggested.

Different dating of the frescoes produced different interpretations of contacts between the Ancient Egyptian court and Cretan polities.
