Digital Sensoriality: The Neolithic Figurines from Koutroulou Magoula, Greece

Cambridge Archaeological Journal 29.4 (2019): 625-652

The image-based discourse on clay figurines that treated them as merely artistic representations, the meaning of which needs to be deciphered through various iconological methods, has been severely critiqued and challenged in the past decade.

Ακρωτήρι Θήρας. Η Αρχιτεκτονική της Δυτικής Οικίας

Αθήνα

Ακρωτήρι Θήρας. Η Αρχιτεκτονική της Δυτικής Οικίας Οι ανασκαφές που διεξάγονται στον προϊστορικό οικισμό του Ακρωτηρίου της Θήρας, υπό την αιγίδα της Εν Αθήναις Αρχαιολογικής Εταιρείας, είναι εξαιρετικά γενναιόδωρες σε ευρήματα. Η μεγάλη έκρηξη του ηφαιστείου του νησιού, στα μέσα περίπου της 2ης χιλιετίας π.Χ., σφράγισε με παχύ στρώμα τέφρας τα ερείπια μιας πόλης ακμάζουσας, όπως δηλώνουν τα πολυώροφα σπίτια με την πλούσια διακόσμηση και την εξεζητημένη οικοσκευή.

Living apart together. A ceramic analysis of Eastern Crete during the advanced Late Bronze Age

Journal of Greek Archaeology 4 (2019): 31-66

During the Late Minoan (hereinafter LM) II to IIIB phases, roughly between 1450 and 1200 BCE, Cretan society went through a series of changes, the causes and circumstances of which are still the subject of dispute. One of the key issues that remains is the question of the cultural identity or identities of Cretan communities after the widespread, violent destructions of the LM IB palatial centres and settlements on the island.

Tholos A at Apesokari (south-central Crete, Greece) was constructed on a sloping ledge of bedrock, overlooking the Mesara Plain below. Such an inconvenient topographic setting makes Tholos A an unusual example in the corpus of Minoan circular tombs, which were more commonly built on flatter ground.

Country in the City. Agricultural Functions in Protohistoric Urban Settlements (Aegean and Western Mediterranean)

Oxford

Country in the City. Agricultural Functions in Protohistoric Urban Settlements (Aegean and Western Mediterranean) The existence of an opposition between rural and urban spaces is an important question for our societies, and one that has been posed since the radical transformations of the 20th century and the so-called ‘end of the peasants’. In this context it becomes also a question for archaeologists and historians.

Beyond Cyclades. Early Cycladic Sculpture in Context from Mainland Greece, the North and East Aegean

Oxford

Beyond Cyclades. Early Cycladic Sculpture in Context from Mainland Greece, the North and East Aegean This second volume on Early Cycladic (and Cycladicising) sculptures found in the Aegean, examines finds from mainland Greece, along with the rarer items from the north and east Aegean, with the exception of those discovered in the Cyclades (covered in the preceding volume), and of those found in Crete. The significance of these finds is that these are the principal testimonies of the influence of the Early Bronze Age Cycladic cultures in the wider Aegean.

Exploring a Terra Incognita on Crete. Recent Research on Bronze Age Habitation in the Southern Ierapetra Isthmus

Philadelphia

Exploring a Terra Incognita on Crete. Recent Research on Bronze Age Habitation in the Southern Ierapetra Isthmus This book brings together for the first time scholars working on the Bronze Age settlement patterns and material culture of the southern Ierapetra Isthmus, a region that actively participated in the coastal and maritime trade networks of East Crete. During the past few decades, while various archaeological projects focused on the northern isthmus, the Ierapetra area remained largely neglected and unknown, a terra incognita.
