The Minoan Double Axe. An experimental study of production and use

Oxford 2011

The Minoan Double Axe. An experimental study of production and use This study investigates the double axe as a tool in Crete during the Minoan period. Previous scholars have attributed the double axe to the equipment of a woodworker, a carpenter, a stonemason and a butcher. The working activities performed by the different users plausibly would have left various kinds of use-wear on the axe, but this has not been studied until now.

A Seismic History of Crete

Αθήνα 2011

A Seismic History of Crete The seismicity in Greece and in the adjacent regions is the highest in the Western Eurasia. One of the most active seismotectonic structures in that region is the Hellenic Arc and Trench (H-AT) system. The island of Crete occupies the central segment of H-AT just to the north of the front where the lithospheric plates of Africa and Eurasia converge and the former bends and subducts beneath the later.

Ambiguity and Minoan Neopalatial Seal Imagery

Uppsala 2011

Ambiguity and Minoan Neopalatial Seal Imagery Minoan seals have often been described as problematically ambiguous. By assembling and reframing current discourse, this volume challenges the value of characterising glyptic imagery in this way. Instead ambiguity may indicate the presence of deliberate practice, incorporating varied meanings through multivalent or condensed expression, well suited to the compact size of the glyptic medium.

The First Mediterranean Islanders: Initial Occupation and Survival Strategies

Oxford 2011

The First Mediterranean Islanders: Initial Occupation and Survival Strategies The present volume provides a much needed contribution to island archaeology by examining the characteristics of the initial occupation of the Mediterranean islands. It enhances our understanding of the mechanisms, strategies, cultural contingencies and social alliances that enabled the consolidation of a permanent human presence in these settings.

Το χρονικό της ανασκαφής των Μυκηνών, 1870-1878

Aθήνα 2011

Το χρονικό της ανασκαφής των Μυκηνών, 1870-1878 H ανασκαφή των Μυκηνών του 1876 από τον Ερρίκο Schliemann είναι η πλέον γνωστή και διάσημη του 19ου αιώνα στην Ελλάδα. Eξ αρχής θεωρήθηκε, δικαίως, πολύ σημαντική και πραγματικά υπήρξε η αρχή της δημιουργίας ενός κλάδου της αρχαιολογικής επιστήμης, της μελέτης του έως τότε άγνωστου μυκηναϊκού πολιτισμού.

Ethnicity in Mediterranean Protohistory

Oxford 2011

Ethnicity in Mediterranean Protohistory This book on ethnicity in Mediterranean protohistory may well be regarded as the main and final result of the project on the ethnicity of the Sea Peoples as set up by Wim van Binsbergen as academic supervisor and worked out by Fred Woudhuizen who, in the process, earned himself a PhD from the Erasmus University Rotterdam (2006). The book is divided into four parts: I) Ethnicity in Mediterranean proto-history: explorations in theory and method: With extensive discussions of the Homeric catalogue of ships, the Biblical Table of Nations, and the Sea Peoples of the Late Bronze Age, against the background of a long-range comparative framework; II) The ethnicity of the Sea Peoples: an historical, archaeological and linguistic study; III) The ethnicity of the Sea Peoples: A second opinion; IV) The ethnicity of the Sea Peoples: Towards a synthesis, and in anticipation of criticism.

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

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. The information set out in the second volume mainly comes from the archaeological material, organic residues, and the archaeornetric studies that complete the image of this significant archaeological site.

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.

A Companion to Linear B. Mycenaean Greek Texts and their World, Volume 2

Louvain-la-Neuve 2011

A Companion to Linear B. Mycenaean Greek Texts and their World, Volume 2 Linear B is the earliest form of writing used for Greek. The tablets written in this script offer crucial information about the Mycenaean Greeks and their time. This Companion aims at not only summarizing the results of current research but also trying to explain the problems which arise from the study of the texts and the methods which can be used to solve them.

Thapsos-Class Ware Reconsidered: The Case of Achaea in the Northern Peloponnese. Pottery Workshop or Pottery Style?

Oxford 2011

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.
