Reviews & Quotes
"On the whole, the book raises important points...[is] easy to read and navigate and serves its purpose practically..."
Bryn Mawr Classical Review (2006)
"...a convenient synthesis of the state of the field of Aegean prehistory written by a variety of scholars from the United States, Greece, and the United Kingdom.(...)This is a very enjoyable text by well-read contributors with much to say about their field of study. Overall it is a useful book for Aegean prehistorians looking to situate themselves and their work within the field; it also valuable reading for classicists who have longed been intrigued by the field that never ceases to fascinate.'"
