Reviews & Quotes

"This Festschrift is remarkably rich in content, a volume full of insightful papers which illustrate well the many new directions of research in Aegean pottery studies. This is a proper tribute to Jeremy B. Rutter. "
Judit Haas-Lebegyev
Bryn Mawr Classical Review (2013.02.41)

"The 38 distinct contributions in this volume reflect the enormous range and influence of Rutter's work over the past 40 years. […] This volume will no doubt achieve the wide readership that it deserves, especially among Greek prehistorians, and it is a fitting offering to a scholar who continues to enrich our understanding of all aspects of the early Greek world."
Dimitri Nakassis, University of Toronto
American Journal Of Archaeology (April 2013)
