The Palaeolithic settlement of Lefkas: Archaeological evidence in a palaeogeographic context

Journal of Greek Archaeology 1 (2016): 1-32

In this paper we place the Island of Lefkas in the central Ionian Sea under the spotlight to examine the lithic assemblages recovered by A. Dousougli and K. Zachos from five open-air sites: Karyotes, Cape Doukato, Tsoukalades, Englouvi and Marantochori. We use observations on raw materials, production technology and typology to present a comprehensive account of the core reduction strategies and the tools recovered, and to place the finds in a Palaeolithic timeline.

The stirrup jar has one of the most distinctive shapes of the Mycenaean repertoire and is found throughout the Mediterranean around the end of the Late Bronze Age.

The site is of great importance as it shows the existence of fortified settlements in the highlands of the Eskişehir region, already around the middle of the third millennium BC and possibly in connection with intensified trade relations between distant areas. The settlement of Keçiçayırı, which currently represents the only known example of these settlements, may have been built to manage and protect sources of raw materials like flint.

Considering the re-use of Late Bronze Age buildings in light of contextual information and human remains at Beycesultan

The aim of this work is to understand the nature of the deposition of the human remains within the settlement and whether these people were killed in the attacks and/or by the fires. The study of human remains from one building reveals that the human bones within this space were deposited secondarily, which raises more questions about the identity of the new settlers.
