In this book, Kramer-Hajos examines the Euboean Gulf region in Central Greece to explain its flourishing during the post-palatial period. Providing a social and political history of the region in the Late Bronze Age, she focuses on the interactions between this 'provincial' coastal area and the core areas where the Mycenaean palaces were located. Drawing on network and agency theory, two current and highly effective methodologies in prehistoric Mediterranean archaeology, Kramer-Hajos argues that the Euboean Gulf region thrived when it was part of a decentralized coastal and maritime network, and declined when it was incorporated in a highly centralized mainland-looking network. Her research and analysis contributes new insights to our understanding of the mechanics and complexity of the Bronze Age Aegean collapse.

Knossos, Troja, Athen, Rom, Pompeji, Palmyra Einführungen in die Geschichte der Antike orientieren sich auch heute noch oft an politischen Ereignissen und den Taten "großer Männer". Beate Wagner-Hasel stellt in diesem Studienbuch dagegen die Kultur- und Religionsgeschichte, die Wirtschafts- und Sozialgeschichte sowie die Geschlechtergeschichte der antiken Welt ins Zentrum ihrer Darstellung, die chronologisch vom minoisch-mykenischen Griechenland bis in die römische Kaiserzeit reicht. Entlang von Umbrüchen der politischen Systeme - der Entstehung der griechischen Polis, dem Sturz der Tyrannis, dem Aufkommen der attischen Demokratie, der Gründung und Krise der römischen Republik und der Ausbildung des Prinzipats - entfaltet sie ein farbiges Bild einer Epoche, deren kulturelle und soziale Praktiken uns heute fremd geworden sind, die für die Identität Europas aber unabdingbare Anknüpfungspunkte bietet.

The end of the Bronze Age in the Eastern Mediterranean was a time of social, political, and economic upheaval – conditions reflected, in many ways, in the world of Homer’s Odyssey. Jeffrey P. Emanuel examines the Odyssey’s Second Cretan Lie (xiv 191 – 359) in the context of this watershed transition, with particular emphasis on raiding, warfare, maritime technology and tactics, and the evidence for the so-called ‘Sea Peoples’ who have been connected to the events of this period. He focuses in particular on the hero’s description of his frequent raiding activities and on his subsequent sojourn in the land of the pharaohs, and connections between Odysseus’ false narrative and the historical experiences of one particular Sea Peoples group: the ‘Sherden of the Sea.’

Following on from Rodney Castleden's best-selling study Minoans, this major contribution to our understanding of the crucial Mycenaean period clearly and effectively brings together research and knowledge we have accumulated since the discovery of the remains of the civilization of Mycenae in the 1870s. In lively prose, informed by the latest research and using a full bibliography and over 100 illustrations, this vivid study delivers the fundamentals of the Mycenaean civilization including its culture, hierarchy, economy and religion. Castleden introduces controversial views of the Mycenaean palaces as temples, and studies their impressive sea empire and their crucial interaction with the outside Bronze Age world before discussing the causes of the end of their civilization. Providing clear, easy information and understanding, this is a perfect starting point for the study of the Greek Bronze Age.

Die Waffengräber der ägäischen Bronzezeit

Bernhard Steinmann widmet sich in seiner Untersuchung Waffengrabern der minoischen und mykenischen Hochkulturen aus dem 20. bis 12. Jahrhundert v.Chr. Zu den typischen Grabbeigaben gehoren hier vor allem Waffen, die das Interesse der Elite spiegeln, ihre kriegerische Tuchtigkeit zu betonen. Neben der formalen Betrachtung der Waffen allgemein wird die Architektur der Grabanlagen analysiert und auch die nichtmilitarischen Grabbeigaben werden in einen gesamtkulturellen Kontext gestellt. Dabei zeigt sich, dass Waffengraber zum traditionellen Brauchtum des griechischen Festlands gehorten. Auf Kreta hingegen fehlen Waffengraber bis zur Zerstorung der minoischen Palaste um 1450 v.Chr. fast vollig, erst danach finden sie sich in grosser Anzahl, was dafur spricht, dass die Insel von festlandischen Griechen erobert wurde. Auch nach der Etablierung der mykenischen Palaste wurde die Grabsitte kontinuierlich fortgefuhrt und noch nach deren Fall um 1200 v.Chr. weiterpraktiziert. Steinmann zeigt in seiner Studie, dass die Waffenbeigabe im Grab sowie das Kriegswesen allgemein eine wichtige Rolle fur die Selbstdarstellung der festlandisch-mykenischen Oberschicht spielte, was auch die Beliebtheit des Themas in der Kunst belegt. Militarische Tuchtigkeit war ein identitatsstiftendes Element adeliger Lebensfuhrung, das im Grabbrauch seine Entsprechung fand.

This study examines the relationship between the Mycenaean palatial administration and the relgious sector, asking whether the religious sector should be considered as a subsidiary part of the central administration, or with, in fact it had its own power and economic independence. The study reassesses linear B tablets, particularly those related to land-holding to reconstruct he economic activities of the sanctuaries and their religious personnel, showing them to have been involved in agriculture, animal husbandry, textile manufacture and bronze working, interacting with the palatial administration in much the same way as the secular collectors.
