The aim of this paper is to deepen the investigation of the kiln published in 1975 by D. Levi and C. Laviosa, with commendable zeal and documentation. Construction details are now comparable with those of other kilns excavated in Late Minoan Crete.
Lo scavo della fornace di H. Triada fu l'ultima 'fatica' militante di Doro Levi. L'indimenticato Maestro lavorava già da qualche anno alla pubblicazione definitiva dello scavo di Festòs, con lunghi soggiorni estivi nei magazzini della Missione italiana.
The purpose of this research is to verify, in a preliminary form, a sector of the South West wing of the first palace of Phaistos, excavated by D. Levi during the 1950s. This part of the building, which has yielded a substantial number of finds, has always been highly problematic for the interpretation of data.

While the Bronze Age Culture in Crete is known as the “Minoan Culture” according to Evans, the same culture in the Greek Mainland is called Helladic, that in the Aegean Islands Cycladic and that in Asia Minor Anatolian Culture. In the present work the main focus is put on those mentioned Minoan, Helladic, Cycladic and Anatolian or Hellenic Bronze Age (HBA) cultures.

This study presents the results of a small but intensive surface survey conducted on the Mastos Hill in the Berbati Valley in 1999. While remains from the Early and Late Helladic period were known from previous excavations on its southern and eastern slopes, this is the first analysis of the entire hill. It includes a digital documentation of the local topography as well as an account of the archaeological remains retrieved in the field.
Die sog. minoischen Lustralbassins sind in der ägäischen Bronzezeit nahezu ausschließlich im minoischen Kreta bekannt. Einzig auf der Insel Thera, die bekanntermaßen stark minoisch geprägt war, wurde ein weiterer Raum dieser Art entdeckt. Im mykenischen Griechenland findet sich der Bautypus der Lustralbassins hingegen nirgendwo.
The natural conditions that prevail in the Bosphorus and the Dardanelles have in later times made it difficult, though not impossible, for sailing vessels to pass these straits on their way to the Black Sea.
This paper discusses Late Bronze Age maritime trade in the Mediterranean Sea attempting to assess the effectiveness of recent theoretical models and proposing some updated perspectives. In particular the effective role of elites in the exchanges is assessed.
The rocky islet of Modi is situated SE of Poros on a sea route very important for navigation in the region. On the north steep sloppy bottom of Modi, at a depth of 27-40 meters, the cargo of a Late Bronze Age shipwreck was discovered, during an underwater research project carried out by the Hellenic Institute of Marine Archaeology (HIMA), under the direction of the author.
This paper attempts to present the archaeological sites and cultural exchanges between the network of the Ionian Sea islands as stopping places of a long journey along the western coastline of Greece in the middle Mediterranean Sea through which people exchanged things, knowledge and experience.
The Minoans are rightly noted for their seafaring abilities. Their ships turned the Mediterranean Sea for them into a highway over which they interacted with far-flung contemporaneous cultures. To date, not a single Minoan/Cycladic hull has been found, however.
