Product description

The cultural identity of the Ionian Islands during the Bronze Age and Early Iron Age was shaped by a variety of factors, not least by their geographical position at the north-western fringes of the Aegean world. Through the scrutiny of all the categories of archaeological evidence - tombs and cemetaries, settlements and artefacts (pottery, weapons, tools, jewellery) - Christina Haywood reconstructs the archaeological profile of a region whose character in prehistory alternated between cultural vitality and openness to long-distance connections, on the one hand, and provincialism and isolation, on the other.

Review quote

"The descriptions of sites are clear and detailed, the parallels thoroughly researched and the analysis of connections and implications lucid, objective and impressively well-informed... a gigantic step forward in the archaeology of the Ionian Islands." -- Mediterranean Prehistory Online
