YAR203 Aegean Prehistoric Societies

Professor: Markos KATSIANIS | Course outline [pdf file]

The course examines the prehistoric societies of the Aegean with a view to investigating the cultural processes that led from the early hunter-gatherer groups to the Neolithic agricultural communities and the development of the Bronze Age palatial systems. An overview of archaeological research, Αegean material culture and contemporary research questions is made with reference to important archaeological sites and research programs. At the same time, fundamental archaeological concepts (such as domestication, complexity, redistribution, style, collapse, etc.) are analyzed. The debate extends to the appreciation of prehistoric culture today.
