Cutting-edge Technologies in Ancient Greece


This volume examines materials produced with the use of fire and mostly by use of the kiln (metals, plasters, glass and glaze, aromatics).

The technologies based on fire have been considered high-tech technologies and they have contributed to the evolution of man throughout history.

Papers highlight technical innovations of the technician/artist/pyrotechnologist that lived in the Aegean (mainland Greece and the islands) during the Bronze Age, the Classical and the Byzantine periods.
