From Egyptian to Egyptianizing in Cypriot Glyptic of the Late Bronze Age

Journal of Ancient Egyptian Interconnections 5:3 (September 2013): 10-43.

The 228 contextualized seals at Enkomi allow for detailed views into how Egyptian seal types were used in the Late Bronze Age(ca. 1650–1050 BCE) in one settlement on Cyprus. Over time the emphasis shifted from Egyptian seal rings and uncarved scarabs and scaraboids in tombs to Egyptianizing designs on Cypriot cylinder and conoid stamp seals that recalled the carved details on the bottoms of scarabs.

Cyprus and Egypt in the Late Bronze Age

Journal of Ancient Egyptian Interconnections 5:3 (September 2013): 1-9.

The socioeconomic and ideological transformations that characterize Late Bronze Age Cyprus have been linked to a major expansion in interconnections with the older cultures of ancient western Asia and Egypt.

Homer’s Entangled Objects: Narrative, Agency and Personhood In and Out of Iron Age Texts

Cambridge Archaeological Journal 23:3 (October 2013): 395-416.

In recent years, material culture studies have come to embrace contemporary Melanesia and European prehistory, but not classical archaeology and art. Prehistory is still thought, in many quarters, to be intrinsically more ‘ethnographic’ than historical periods; in this discourse, the Greeks (by default) become proto-modern individuals, necessarily opposed to Melanesian ‘dividuals’.

The Archaeology of Mind: It’s Not What You Think

Cambridge Archaeological Journal 23:1 (February 2013): 1-17.

Narratives of human evolution place considerable emphasis upon human cognitive development resulting from the evolution of brain architecture and witnessed by the production of ‘symbolic’ material culture. Recent work has modified the narrative to the extent that cognitive development is treated as the product of humanity's ability to download certain aspects of brain functionality, such as the storage of information, into external media.

Measuring chronological uncertainty in intensive survey finds: a case study from Antikythera, Greece

Archaeometry 55:2 (April 2013): 312-328.

This paper considers how to make the most out of the rather imprecise chronological knowledge that we often have about the past. We focus here on the relative dating of artefacts during archaeological fieldwork, with particular emphasis on new ways to express and analyse chronological uncertainty.

Performance evaluation of a multi-image 3D reconstruction software on a low-feature artefact

Journal of Archaeological Science 40:12 (December 2013): 4450-4456.

Nowadays, multi-image 3D reconstruction is an active research field and a number of commercial and free software tools have been already made available to the public. These provide methods for the 3D reconstruction of real world objects by matching feature points and retrieving depth information from a set of unordered digital images.

Shades of blue – cobalt-copper coloured blue glass from New Kingdom Egypt and the Mycenaean world: a matter of production or colourant source?

Journal of Archaeological Science 40:12 (December 2013): 4731-4743.

Cobalt blue glass has long now been recognised as characterised by a distinct compositional signature within the typical compositional range of Late Bronze Age glass. More recently, a copper-rich variation of cobalt blue glass has been seen throughout Egypt and the Mycenaean world.

Ground-penetrating radar investigations at Kalavasos-Ayios Dhimitrios offer a new look at Late Bronze Age Cyprus

Antiquity 87:338 (December 2013): Project Gallery

During the Late Bronze Age (1650–1100 BC) Cyprus witnessed an increase in social, political and economic complexity, with settlements becoming urban in composition and international in scope. These 'urban' settlements and associated elite place-making both created and defined a new Late Cypriot society.

Site in Transition: John L. Caskey, Ayia Irini and Archaeological Practice in Greek Archaeology

Aegean Archaeology 10 (2009-2010) [2013]: 105-120.

The present article is a study of archaeological practice in Greek archaeology, assessed through the methods used by John L. Caskey in excavation and post-excavation procedures, as well as in publication. Archaeological practice is an interpretive exercise rather than mere recovery of artifacts and data.

The EM III Phase in South Central Crete: New Data from Phaistos

Aegean Archaeology 10 (2009-2010) [2013]: 65-85.

The Prepalatial period in south central Crete is largely known through the rich but generally unstratified deposits that have been retrieved from the communal tholos tombs, and which have been dated by virtue of stylistic and typological comparisons with ceramic deposits excavated elsewhere in Crete.

The Asklupis Reconsidered: A Preliminary Report on the Chronology and Burial Practices of an Early Bronze Age 2 Cemetery on Kos

Aegean Archaeology 10 (2009-2010) [2013]: 47-63.

In May 1943, L. Morricone directed a brief archeological investigation of the Asklupis area, situated in northeast Kos. Four Early Bronze Age tombs, including ten vases, a spindle whorl, and a dagger, were brought to light together with a relatively small assemblage of stray finds from a nearby trial trench.

Searching for the Missing “Palace”: Proto- and Neopalatial Settlement Dynamics in the Southern Ierapetra Isthmus. The Recent Evidence

Aegean Archaeology 10 (2009-2010) [2013]: 33-46.

During a two year period (2006- 2008) the author, inspired by two contemporary archaeological projects along the northern part of the Isthmus (Kavousi and Gournia Surveys), attempted to explore the diachronic settlement patterns of the South Ierapetra Isthmus. Even though the project was promising at the beginning, it failed to provide answers to basic research questions regarding the Bronze Age settlement history of the Ierapetra area.
