The new Swedish Cyprus Expedition 2010. Excavations at Dromolaxia Vizatzia/Hala Sultan Tekke: Preliminary results

Opuscula. Annual of the Swedish Institutes at Athens and Rome 4 (2011): 69-98.

Determination of the complete occupational sequence of the site, including investigation of pre-12th century levels which were thoroughly studied by P. Åstrӧm since the 1970s, is the main task of the planned project. During the course of the expedition (NSCE1I) in spring 2010 a ground-penetrating radar survey (GPR) was carried out at Dromolaxia Vizatzia/Hala Sultan Tekke in Area 6, leading to the discovery of a large Late Cypriot complex.

Child Burials in Mesolithic and Neolithic Southern Greece: A Synthesis

Childhood in the Past: An International Journal 4.1 (Summer 2011): 31-45.

The treatment of children during the Mesolithic and Neolithic in southern Greece can provide us with a rare insight of age differentiations, social practices and beliefs in these early periods. The diachronic presentation and analysis of this particular group of burials will provide a better understanding of the social and conceptual changes the role of children had in these communities.

Cypro-Minoan in Philistia?

Kubaba 2 (2011): 40-74.

In this paper, claims that Cypro-Minoan inscriptions have been found in Philistia are discussed and evaluated. First, an overview of Cypro-Minoan is presented, including discussions of Masson’s division of the script into four varieties, the evidence for her divisions, the reasons for the scarceness of Cypro-Minoan clay documents, and the purposes for which the script was apparently used.

Franchthi Cave revisited: the age of the Aurignacian in south-eastern Europe

Antiquity 85.330 (December 2011): 1131-1150.

The Aurignacian, traditionally regarded as marking the beginnings of Sapiens in Europe, is notoriously hard to date, being almost out of reach of radiocarbon. Here the authors return to the stratified sequence in the Franchthi Cave, chronicle its lithic and shell ornament industries and, by dating humanly-modified material, show that Franchthi was occupied either side of the Campagnian Ignimbrite super-eruption around 40000 years ago.

Inseln der Winde. Die maritime Kultur der bronzezeitlichen Ägäis Die Ägäis erlebte in der Bronzezeit eine rasante kulturelle Entwicklung, bei der das maritime Element eine entschei­dende Rolle spielte. Zuerst waren es die Kykladen-Bewohner und später die Minoer, die seetüchtige Boote und Schiffe entwickelt haben, mit denen sie die wichtigsten maritimen Wege beherrschten.

ΣΤΕΓΑ: The Archaeology of Houses and Households in Ancient Crete

Princeton

ΣΤΕΓΑ: The Archaeology of Houses and Households in Ancient Crete This volume presents the papers of an international colloquium on the archaeology of houses and households in ancient Crete held in Ierapetra in May 2005. The name of the conference—and of the present volume—was inspired by the “Great Code” of Gortyn, where stega (literally, “roof”) is used to refer to the “house” both as a building and as an important element of a citizen’s “household.” Indeed, understanding the relationship between “house” as physical structure and “household” as social unit remains among the fundamental goals and challenges of household archaeology in any time period or geographical location.
