Uppsala 2016While the analysis of stone tools has been a cornerstone of prehistoric archaeology since its inception, their role in the study of Greek sites gained greater traction only in the 1950s.
Talanta XLVI-XLVII (2014-2015): 27-50The assumption that a Trojan War took place in the so-called Troas at the Dardanelles depends on the belief that there once existed a population called Troes in this region, as the Ilias maintains. However, the Troes in the Ilias do not carry Anatolian, but only Greek and Thracian or Illyrian names; there is no Trojan identity.

Greek, Roman, and Byzantine Studies 56 (2016): 572-584This paper aims to highlight a number of problems involved with current interpretations and identifications of persons in Ta 711, a Linear B tablet from the Mycenaean palace of Pylos, which records a number of objects that were presented on the occasion of the appointment of a da-mo-ko-ro.
Cutting-edge technology and knowhow of Minoans/Myceneans during LBA and possible implications for the dating of the Trojan war
Talanta XLVI-XLVII (2014-2015): 51-79In the present paper, the material evidence, in LBA, both for the technological level of Minoan/Mycenaean Greece, mainland-islands-Crete, and the image emerging from the archaeological finds of the wider area of Asia Minor, Land of Ḫatti, Cyprus, and Egypt, are combined in order to draw conclusions regarding international relations and exchanges.
PLOS ONE 11(11) (open access)Reconstructions of the vegetation of Europe during the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM) are an enigma. Pollen-based analyses have suggested that Europe was largely covered by steppe and tundra, and forests persisted only in small refugia.
Talanta XLVI-XLVII (2014-2015): 7-26When we look into western Anatolia in the LH IIIC period, an increase in Mycenaean pottery is observed in comparison with the preceding periods along the coast in settlements like Panaztepe, Liman Tepe, Bademgediği Tepe, Kadıkalesi, Miletos, and Cine-Tepecik.
Nature Communications 7 (open access)Caldera-forming eruptions of island volcanoes generate tsunamis by the interaction of different eruptive phenomena with the sea. Such tsunamis are a major hazard, but forward models of their impacts are limited by poor understanding of source mechanisms.
