ARCA2610 - Minoans and Mycenaens

Semester 1, 2011  |  Credit Points: 6

Coordinator: Margaret Christina Miller


Archaeological research since the 19th century discovery and excavation of Knossos and Mycenae continues to expand our understanding about the rich prehistoric cultures of Greece but dimly remembered in later times. Recent shift of attention from palace centres to the economic, social and religious life of the ordinary person is aided by such discoveries as the Cycladic town at Akrotiri. The three main cultures of Bronze Age Greece (ca. 3000-1100 BC) are explored with focus on their characteristic features.
