Ο σεβασμός και η φροντίδα προς τους νεκρούς τεκμηριώνεται με αρκετό υλικό σε σχέδον όλες τις προϊστορικές κοινωνίες του Αιγαίου, ενώ η ποικιλία των τελετουργικών πρακτικών, απλών και σύνθετων, στην ταφή είναι χαρακτηριστική για τα συναισθήματα και τον τρόπο διαχείρισής τους από τους επιγόνους.

The ancient slag heaps of Cyprus contain the story of the island as a regional source of copper throughout the millennia. Located near the ore deposits, many of these heaps were destroyed by modern mining activities and some are still under immediate threat. F

In Cyprus stone was the primary building material, either as rubble or in a dressed form (called ashlar), since the Neolithic period. Initially stone was used only as rubble but later during the Late Brone Age ashlar stone appeared for the first time on the island.
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.

This paper discusses the Greek Mesolithic record in the light of refinements to the international calibration curve and recent archaeological research. Central to the discussion are the time frame used for this period of Greek prehistory, and the diagnostic potential, or visibility, of Mesolithic stone tools.

The two reconstituted faience figurines from the Temple Repositories at Knossos were restored by Sir Arthur Evans as epitomes of elite women of the Neopalatial period and objects of an indigenous palatial cult of the Snake Goddess.

‘Minoan’ frescoes from the Egyptian palatial complex at Tell el Dabca have raised many questions regarding the nature and complexity of Egypt-Aegean interrelations. Different dating of the frescoes produced different interpretations of contacts between the Ancient Egyptian court and Cretan polities.

This article describes the initial phase of investigations at Kalamianos, a recently discovered Mycenaean coastal settlement on the Saronic Gulf in the southeastern Corinthia. To date 50 buildings and 120 rooms of Late Helladic IIIB date have been identified at the site, which is unique for the excellent preservation of aboveground architectural remains.
A biographical approach to the study of material culture reveals that an object’s meaning usually varies in different episodes of its life history. This article examines the terracotta statues from the temple at Ayia Irini on Kea in three contexts of experience: (1) their initial context in the Bronze Age temple;

The harbor site of Kommos, Crete, has yielded rich evidence for long-distance exchange in the form of ceramic transport jars of types used not only for distribution within Crete and the Aegean, but also across the eastern Mediterranean.

Understanding of Mycenaean palatial administration has moved from a monolithic view of the palace as having total control over the economy of a given state, to a binary model that imagines a non-palatial sector of the state economy alongside the palatial.

Τhe ideogram for saffron has long been recognized on the Linear B tablets from Knossos. Close examination of this corpus allows a distinction in content to be made between the LM II–LM IIIA1 tablets of the Room of the Chariot Tablets and the later LM IIIA1–2 tablets from the North Entrance Passage.

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.
