DE L'ÉDITEUR : This book uses comparative island archaeology to
reinterpret a vital phase in early Aegean history. Cyprian Broodbank
presents the first modern analysis of Cycladic culture, tracing the
development of Neolithic and Early Bronze Age societies in these
islands from first colonisation through to incorporation, three
millennia later, in the world system of the Minoan palaces and the
wider Near East.
The archaeology of this region is rich and
well-documented, and allows Dr Broodbank to reformulate early Cycladic
history and to deploy detailed examples that challenge established
approaches to island archaeology. He shows that islanders can actively
define their cultural space and environments, and that their
communities are linked by complex relations to the non-insular world.
This book provides fresh perspectives and
challenges for island archaeologists and Mediterranean specialists.
|ILSE SCHOEP :
This is one of the most important monographs that has appeared in the
field of Cycladic archaeology. It formulates and answers fundamental
questions about the structure and organisation of early Cycladic
society and culture in the Neolithic and Early Bronze Age as well as
presenting new data.
