The second conference report on the archaeological site of Petras, Siteia concerns the progress of research conducted about the very important and extensive cemetery of the Pre- and Proto-palatial periods in eastern Crete - one of very few excavations started in Crete in the 21st century.
The present book consists in the full publication of both the structures and related finds excavated in the Protopalatial building located at the southern slope of the so-called Acropoli Mediana at Phaistos, ca. 100 m West of the Palace (Rooms CV, CVI and CVII). This building was the object of a rescue excavation, carried out by Doro Levi in 1969 and 1971.

Les échanges scientifiques et, plus précisément, le travail de comparaison à différentes échelles entre les palais égéens et proche-orientaux est très vite apparu comme une nécessité après le déchiffrement du linéaire B, et même avant. Le travail en commun et la comparaison restent des défis, et les méthodes de comparaison (échelles, objets, finalités) restent des objets de discussion.

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 wall paintings discussed in this volume were originally discovered in 1958 by Niko-laos Verdelis during the excavation of the West House, one of the four buildings, also known as the “Ivory Houses,” south of Grave Circle B, at Mycenae.
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.
