Archaeologist and award-winning photographer Gavin McGuire’s involvement with the Sissi Archaeological Project, where he conducted a seven-year photographic study of the Bronze Age Minoan excavations under the auspices of the Belgian School in Athens, Université Catholique de Louvain, offered an extraordinary opportunity to capture moments of human interaction during excavations as they interconnected with an ancient Minoan culture, stretching back millennia (2600-1200 BC).

This volume explores the results of the American archaeological survey (2005-2007) carried out around the area of Galatas in Central Crete, as requested by Georgos Rethemiotakis, the Director of Excavations at Galatas.

The island of Euboea has always acted as a bridge connecting mainland Greece to the wider Aegean and the Mediterranean world; its archaeological importance was an acknowledged but often understated fact. Euboea, a region with an identity crisis, at the same time considered an island but also a part of the mainland, due to its geographical and cultural proximity, has for millennia played an important role in events that shaped aspects of Greek antiquity.
