The Greek Bronze Age, roughly 3000 to 1000 BCE, witnessed the flourishing of the Minoan and Mycenean civilizations, the earliest expansion of trade in the Aegean and wider Mediterranean Sea, the development of artistic techniques in a variety of media, and the evolution of early Greek religious practices and mythology. The period also witnessed a violent conflict in Asia Minor between warring peoples in the region, a conflict commonly believed to be the historical basis for Homer's Trojan War. The Oxford Handbook of the Bronze Age Aegean provides a detailed survey of these fascinating aspects of the period, and many others, in sixty-six newly commissioned articles. Divided into four sections, the handbook begins with Background and Definitions, which contains articles establishing the discipline in its historical, geographical, and chronological settings and in its relation to other disciplines. The second section, Chronology and Geography, contains articles examining the Bronze Age Aegean by chronological period (Early Bronze Age, Middle Bronze Age, Late Bronze Age). Each of the periods are further subdivided geographically, so that individual articles are concerned with Mainland Greece during the Early Bronze Age, Crete during the Early Bronze Age, the Cycladic Islands during the Early Bronze Age, and the same for the Middle Bronze Age, followed by the Late Bronze Age. The third section, Thematic and Specific Topics, includes articles examining thematic topics that cannot be done justice in a strictly chronological/geographical treatment, including religion, state and society, trade, warfare, pottery, writing, and burial customs, as well as specific events, such as the eruption of Santorini and the Trojan War. The fourth section, Specific Sites and Areas, contains articles examining the most important regions and sites in the Bronze Age Aegean, including Mycenae, Tiryns, Pylos, Knossos, Kommos, Rhodes, the northern Aegean, and the Uluburun shipwreck, as well as adjacent areas such as the Levant, Egypt, and the western Mediterranean. Containing new work by an international team of experts, The Oxford Handbook of the Bronze Age Aegean represents the most comprehensive, authoritative, and up-to-date single-volume survey of the field. It will be indispensable for scholars and advanced students alike.

The title of this volume, ke-ra-me-ja in Linear B, was chosen because it means ñpotterî (????????, from Greek ???????, ñpotterÍs clayî) and combines two major strands of Cynthia ShelmerdineÍs scholarship: Mycenaean ceramics and Linear B texts. It thereby signals her pioneering use of archaeological and textual data in a sophisticated and integrated way. The intellectual content of the essays demonstrate not only that her research has had wide-ranging influence, but also that it is a model of scholarship to be emulated.



Religion and Society in Middle Bronze Age Greece

Religion and Society in Middle Bronze Age Greece Author Helène Whittaker

The Middle Helladic period has received little attention, partially because of scholars' view of it as merely the prelude to the Mycenaean period and partially because of the dearth of archaeological evidence from the period. In this book, Helène Whittaker demonstrates that Middle Helladic Greece is far more interesting than its material culture might at first suggest. Whittaker comprehensively reviews and discusses the archaeological evidence for religion on the Greek mainland, focusing on the relationship between religious expression and ideology. The book argues that religious beliefs and rituals played a significant role in the social changes that were occurring at the time. The arguments and conclusions of this book will be relevant beyond the Greek Bronze Age and will contribute to the general archaeological debate on prehistoric religion.

Der Gründungsmythos unseres Kontinents ist unauflöslich mit der sagenumwobenen griechischen Insel Kreta verbunden: In Gestalt eines weißen Stiers entführt der verliebte Göttervater Zeus die phönizische Königstochter Europa über das Meer und setzt sie erst wieder an der Küste Kretas ab. Sie gebiert ihm drei Söhne – Minos, Rhadamanthys und Sarpedon –, die ihrerseits als bedeutende Gestalten der griechischen Mythologie auftreten. Vom Namen des Minos, der als König auf Kreta herrscht, leitet sich jener der minoischen Hochkultur ab (3000–1450 n. Chr.), deren reiches archäologisches Erbe noch heute auf Kreta zu bewundern ist. Die Paläste der Minoer werden schließlich von mykenischen Griechen eingenommen. Doch auch ihre Herrschaft versinkt gegen Ende des 2. Jt. n. Chr. in schriftloses Dunkel, ehe sich seit dem 8. Jh. n. Chr. eine neue Kultur in einer Vielzahl von Gemeinden mit differenzierter Gesellschaftsstruktur und bald auch einem entwickelten Rechtswesen herausbildet. Auch wenn die Vorherrschaft einzelner Städte auf Kreta in den folgenden Jahrhunderten mehrfach wechselt und schließlich die Insel unter den Römern – nicht zum ersten und auch nicht zum letzten Mal – zum Objekt einer Fremdherrschaft wird, so bleibt sie doch stets ein bedeutender Faktor der antiken Welt. Kretas wechselvolle Ereignisgeschichte und seine kulturgeschichtliche Vielfalt läßt Angelos Chaniotis in diesem Buch wieder lebendig werden.
